Cytochrome c Oxidase Assay Kit

Product Description
The Cytochrome c Oxidase Assay Kit uses an optimized colorimetric assay based on observation of the decrease in absorbance of ferrocytochrome c measured at 550 nm, which is caused by its oxidation to ferricytochrome c by cytochrome c oxidase. This kit is suitable for the detection of mitochondrial outer membrane integrity and for the detection of mitochondria in subcellular fractions.

Features and Benefits
• Simple, optimized protocol - Obtain reproducible results without special training needs
• Useful for determining cytochrome c activity from any mitchondrial source - The enzyme is present in all mitochondria regardless of species
• Useful for detecting the presence of mitochondria in subcellular fraction - Save time and increase confidence in the quality of organelle preparations
• May be used in conjunction with the MITOISO1 Mitochondrial Isolation Kit - Standardized mitochondrial preparation and analysis ensures reproducibility
• Use to analyze the intactness of mitochondrial membranes
• Simple colorimetric measurement of solution
