Spectrophotometric Assessment of Heme Oxygenase-1 Activity in Leishmania-infected Macrophages
Authors:  Moumita Basu, Shriya Saha and Anindita Ukil, date: 04/05/2020, view: 2116, Q&A: 0
Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) is a stress responsive enzyme that metabolizes heme and releases free iron, carbon monoxide (CO), and biliverdin (BV), which rapidly undergoes conversion to bilirubin (BL). Estimation of bilirubin is the basis of HO-1 assay. ...
