Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) has been used extensively as a marker for cell death both in vitro and in vivo. The release of LDH into tissue culture medium accurately reflects cell viability in vitro. We have investigated the relationship between cell concentration and total LDH activity in samples of cell lysate. Although there are differences in the amount… CONTINUE READING
