Reagents, Clinical Chemistry, Enzyme, Transketolase

Definition : Clinical chemistry reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (e.g., whole blood, erythrocyte hemolysates) to determine the thiamine (vitamin B1) status by measuring the enzyme transketolase (TK); this enzyme is typically measured indirectly (i.e., measuring the thiamine-dependent activity of the enzyme transketolase). Decreased levels of thiamine are used for diagnosis of vitamin B1 deficiency (a disease called beriberi); they are typically found in diets low in thiamine, chronic alcoholism, or some inborn metabolic diseases.

Entry Terms : "Vitamin B1 Status Determination Reagents" , "Transketolase (TK) Determination Reagents" , "TK (Transketolase) Determination Reagents"
