Bennett MJ, Sheng F, Saada A (2020) Methods Cell Biol

Abstract: This chapter focuses on the methods to measure unique metabolites, specific enzymes, and metabolic flux in fatty acid β-oxidation, and on biochemical assays of tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle enzymes and the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex. These assays play an important role in the diagnosis of genetic diseases, newborn screening, and in cancer and metabolism research. The rationale, protocol, pros and cons, and alternative methods are discussed. Nevertheless, each laboratory should adapt the preferred method optimizing sample preparation and assay conditions for linearity and a low signal-to-noise ratio. The reader is also referred to the additional literature citing methods and clinical descriptions of the various diseases.

Correction: FADH2 and Complex II

Ambiguity alert.png
FADH2 is shown as the substrate feeding electrons into Complex II (CII). This is wrong and requires correction - for details see Gnaiger (2024).
