Assay method for myeloperoxidase in human polymorphonuclear leukocytes.

Abstract

A simple assay method for measuring myeloperoxidase (MPO) has been developed. MPO is found in polymorphonuclear leukocytes and is important as a bactericidal agent in the presence of H2O2 and halide ions. This improved assay method is based on work of Andrews and Krinsky using tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) a noncarcinogenic substrate. By assaying MPO under… (More)
