A new type of enzyme electrode: the ascorbic acid eliminator electrode

Life Sciences
Géza NagyR N Adams


A new type of enzyme electrode has been developed for in vivo electrochemical measurements which allows discrimination between ascorbic acid and catecholamines and their metabolites. The electrode employs the enzyme ascorbic acid oxidase held between the voltammetric electrode and solution by a dialysis membrane or immobilized on the outer surface of serous membrane from rat small intestine. The electrode gives linear calibration curves for all catecholamines and metabolites independent of any ascorbic acid concentrations significant in physiological measurements. The electrode has been tested in brain slice measurements and shown to respond to releases of catecholamines initiated by potassium ion stimulation.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
