Nucleotidase activities (ATPase, ADPase, and AMPase) were determined in flat-bottom 96-well plates by measuring the amount of liberated inorganic phosphate (Pi) using the malachite green colorimetric assay [34].
As a measure of ADPase activity, inorganic phosphate (Pi) released was quantified by a colorimetric assay Sensolyte assay kit (AnaSpec) and expressed as nmol Pi released per [micro]g of protein [26].
To further evaluate the potential role of PAP in lymphoid nucleotide homeostasis, we measured the activities of ecto-5'-nucleotidase (Figure 2(a)) and other related purinergic enzymes, ATPase (Figure 2(b)), ADPase (Figure 2(c)), and adenylate knase (Figure 2(d)), in lymphocytes isolated from spleen and bone marrow of PAP knockout and wild type mice.
Undernutrition during the preweaning period changes calcium ATPase and ADPase activities of synaptosomal fractions of weanling rats.
For enzyme histochemistry, ADPase and ecto-5'-nucleotidase (AMPase) activities were localized by using the Wachstein/Meisel lead phosphate method [24, 25] in tissue samples and in touch preparations.
The ADPase activity of NTPDase1 expressing cells, namely, intact COS-7 cells transfected with human NTPDase1 or HuVEC, was strongly inhibited by 100 [micro]M ticlopidine, 99 and 75% inhibition, respectively (Figure 1).
