Assay of Phospholipases

  • Moseley Waite
Part of the Handbook of Lipid Research book series (HLRE, volume 5)


The purpose of this chapter is to describe briefly some of the most commonly used assays for the different classes of phospholipases. Also, some less frequently used assays are described that potentially could be of use under certain conditions. In the following chapters, mention is made of the specifics of the assay used in a particular study and reference to Chapter 1 can be useful as a general reference. Some chapters focus on substrate-enzyme interaction and therefore give better insight into the molecular mechanism of the assays used; this is particularly true of Chapter 10.
