Glutamate Dehydrogenase Activity Assay Kit (ab102527) provides a convenient tool for sensitive detection of GDH in a variety of samples. GDH in sample will consume glutamate as a specific substrate and generate NADH stoichiometrically, resulting in a proportional color development. The GDH activity is easily quantified colorimetrically (λ = 450 nm). This assay detects GDH activity as low as 0.01mU in serum or tissue and cell extracts.

Glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) is an enzyme that converts glutamate to α-Ketoglutarate, and vice versa. It represents a key link between catabolic and metabolic pathways, and is therefore ubiquitous in eukaryotes.
