Assay for Oxidative Metabolism
Part of the Methods in Molecular Bilogy book series (MIMB, volume 34)
Phagocytic leukocytes that are exposed to opsonized particles, chemoattractants, or selected cytokines undergo a rapid burst in oxygen consumption and activation of the enzyme responsible for the oxidative metabolic burst, NADPH oxidase (reviewed in 1). Active NADPH oxidase catalyzes the reaction:
