  • Form
  • Additional notes

    PDH Kinases (PDKs) deactivate PDH by reversible phosphorylation. In humans and rodents, 4 PDK's are present in an organ-dependent manner. In all cases, PDK's are physically part of the PDH complex (binding via lipoyl domain 2 of E2), and they phosphorylate the E1 subunit at 3 specific serine residues. PDH phosphatases remove the phosphorylation and restore activity of PDH.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your enquiry. This is an interesting question and I would be pleased to help you further.  In order to do so, I would appreciate if you could confirm the following: 1. Are you wanting to measure viability? Or metabolic activity? Or respiratory capacity?  2. Do you have in place a procedure that ensures a single cell suspension after lipo-aspiration?  The kits we have to measure viability or cell death are cell based assays:  We have a life-death stain called CFSE available in the abcam catalogue: https://www.abcam.com/CFSE-Cell-Labeling-Kit-ab113853.html This may help as long as a single cell suspension is prepared from the aspiration procedure and they have access to a fluorescence microscope of a flow cytometer.  There is also an ATP kit which will measure viability: https://www.abcam.com/Luminescent-ATP-Detection-Assay-Kit-ab113849.html Other kits are geared towards specific pathways in mitochondria and measurement of specific parameters.  So without more information it is very difficult to know exactly what to recommend. I hope the information on the following link may also be helpful to you: http://www.mitosciences.com/cellular-activity-assay-kits.html If you require any further information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me with the requested information.
