Glycolysis and Warburg’s Effect

Glycolysis is observed virtually in cells of all types — eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. In tumor cells, this pathway tends to be extremely upregulated (Warburg’s effect).

Many studies target the enzymes involved in the 10-step pathway to identify potential chemotherapeutic agents against various types of cancer. BioVision provides the most complete series of assays measuring various metabolite, cofactors and enzymes associated with the glycolytic pathway.

Figure: Pyruvate Standard Curve: colorimetric (a), fluorometric (b). Quantitation of pyruvate in human saliva (c) and mouse liver lysate (d). Saliva sample was centrifuged at 10,000 x g for 10 min. at 4°C. Supernatant (10 µl) was spiked with known amounts of pyruvate Standard (6 nmol) and assayed according to kit protocol. Mouse liver homogenate was centrifuged and supernatant was collected. Supernatant was deproteinized using 10 kDa spin column (Cat. # 1997) and filtrate was diluted 5 fold. 10 ul of this diluted filtrate was spiked with known amount of pyruvate Standard (6 nmol) and assayed according to kit K609 protocol.
