General description

Zinc, one of the most abundant trace metals in living organisms, contributes to a variety of biological functions including neurological development, nucleic acid metabolism, and signal transduction. Zinc is utilized as a cofactor for many enzymes, such as carbonic anhydrase, which is important to carbon dioxide regulation and carboxypeptidase, which cleaves peptide linkages. It is involved in various cellular processes, such as immune function, wound healing, protein synthesis, DNA synthesis and cell division. Zinc facilitates normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood and adolescence. It also exhibits antioxidant properties and is essential for proper sense of taste and smell.

Zinc, one of the most abundant trace metals in living organisms, contributes to a variety of biological functions including neurological development, nucleic acid metabolism, and signal transduction. Zinc is utilized as a cofactor for many enzymes, such as carbonic anhydrase, which is important to carbon dioxide regulation, and carboxypeptidase, which cleaves peptide linkages. The Zinc Assay kit provides a simple and direct procedure for measuring zinc in a variety of samples, including serum, plasma, urine, or cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). Zinc ions bind to a ligand, which results in a colorimetric (560 nm) product proportional to the amount of zinc present.

Principle

The Zinc Assay kit provides a simple and direct procedure for measuring zinc in a variety of samples, including serum, plasma, urine, or cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). Zinc ions bind to a ligand, which results in a colorimetric (560 nm) product proportional to the amount of zinc present.

Suitability

Suitable for measuring zinc concentrations in a variety of samples, including serum, plasma, urine, or cerebral spinal fluid (CSF).
