ADA Kinetic Assay Runs

  • During the previous lab entry, the molar absorptivities of adenosine and inosine were calculated. Adenosine was found to have a higher molar absorptivity at 235.
  • It was concluded from the previous period that the absorption of adenosine should decrease over time. A kinetic assay scan of the reaction containing 2.7 mL of sodium phosphate buffer, 300 μL of adenosine, and 15 μL of ADA was taken.
  • The program was set to Kinetics with the wavelength at 235 for a collection span of 600s.
