Two major methods have been used to measure glucose. The first, still in use in some places, is a chemical method exploiting the nonspecific reducing property of glucose in a reaction with an indicator substance that changes color when reduced. Since other blood compounds also have reducing properties (e.g., urea, which can be abnormally high in uremic patients), this technique can produce erroneous readings in some situations (5-15 mg/dL has been reported). The more recent technique, using enzymes specific to glucose, is less susceptible to this kind of error. The two most common employed enzymes are glucose oxidase and hexokinase.[28] Average blood glucose concentrations can also be measured. This method measures the level of glycated hemoglobin, which is representative of the average blood glucose levels over the last, approximately, 120 days.[28] In either case, the chemical system is commonly contained on a test strip which is inserted into a meter, and then has a blood sample applied. ...

  • BACKGROUND: In hypoxic newborns, cardiac troponin T (cTnT) was shown to be an indicator of cardiac damage and increased levels of nonprotein-bound iron (NPBI), an indicator of increased free radical production and perinatal brain damage. (biomedsearch.com)
  • 18°C). The model calculates the local changes in the concentrations of free Ca 2+ and of Ca 2+ bound to the major intrinsic myoplasmic Ca 2+ buffers (troponin, ATP, parvalbumin, and the SR Ca 2+ pump) and to the Ca 2+ indicator (fluo-3). (rupress.org)
  • TnT , the part which attaches to tropomyosin, TnI , an inhibitory portion which attaches to actin, and TnC which binds calcium ions. (unm.edu)

  • Later, elevated troponin T levels are the result of treatment with antiplatelet drugs as well as low-molecular-weight heparin, as stated by Mayo Clinic. (reference.com)
  • Now these have been updated by more recent concepts derived from molecular dynamic simulations treating troponin as a dynamic structure. (frontiersin.org)
