α-Ketoglutarate dehydrogenase complex is a multienzyme complex present in the mitochondria. This enzyme catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of α-Ketoglutarate (KG) to succinyl-CoA with concomitant production of NADH which is proportional to the activity of the enzyme. This enzyme has been shown to be inactivated by oxidative stress. Therefore, the activity of this enzyme is a likely target of oxidative inactivation. The assay procedure uses 1-mL assay reaction volume, and requires quartz cuvettes of 1-mL capacity and a spectrophotometer with kinetic function with temperature control. The assay can be performed with isolated mitochondria or whole cell or tissue lysate.

Redoxica's Alpha-Ketoglutarate Dehydrogenase (α-KDH) Assay Kit has undergone extensive testing with a number of lysate types, has been published in leading scientific journals and after a decade since its market debut has been recognized as an industry leader in α-KDH and other mitochondrial enzyme assay technologies. We developed the assay by utilizing core principles of biochemistry to ensure optimal accuracy, sensitivity, and reproducibility accompanied by a quick and easy-to-use protocol.
