Product Description

Phenazine Methosulfate

Application Notes

Phenazine Methosulfate is used in tyrosine transaminase test and for enzymic determination of ethanol in blood by the colorimetric micromethod. Used with ascorbic acid to determine nitric oxide reductase activity. Since the reduced PMS is easily oxidized by oxygen, it is used in assays as an electron carrier between enzymes and oxygen, cytochrome c, indophenols, or tetrazolium salts. The reduced PMS is used as an electron donor to reduce cytochrome c or in photosynthetic experiments. Usage of PMS for detection of specific dehydrogenases has been reported.

Biochemical Physiological Actions PMS is reduced by flavoproteins such as succinic dehydrogenase. PMS is reduced non-enzymatically by NADH and NADPH. PMS is also reduced by dithionite, sodium borohydride, ascorbic acid, reduced ubiquinones, and reduced vitamin K. PMS reacts with sulfhydryl groups including those of enzymes.
