Researchers develop method to measure enzyme in living cells

10/3/2009 | PhysOrg.com

Researchers using spectroscopy and microscopy have developed a method to measure the levels of a fluorescent co-enzyme called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide in living cells. The technique showed that the NADH molecules are doubly prevalent in breast cancer cells than in normal cells -- a possible indicator of usually missed early-stage malignancies. The method could allow for the noninvasive evaluation of living cells, which could lead to further understanding of how the cells function under diseased circumstances, a researcher said.
