Activity of which of the following isoenzymes of CK is highest in the serum of healthy individuals? CK-MM
In the analytical enzymatic measurement of substrate, an enzyme reaction is accompanied by a change in absorbance of one component of the assay system. If this change is continuously monitored while it is occurring, the reaction is referred to as a(n): Kinetic reaction
The graph on which the plot of 1/velocity versus 1/substrate concentration is illustrated is referred to as a: Lineweaver-Burk plot
Which of the following enzymes catalyzes the reaction of glutamate and pyruvate to form 2-oxoglutarate and an amino acid? ALT
Which of the following enzymes demonstrates an increase in activity with progressive Duchenne muscular dystrophy, followed by a decrease as muscle mass decreases? CK
Measurement of decreased activity of which of the following enzymes is used to determine possible insecticide poisoning? Serum Cholinesterase
The "active center" of an enzyme is: that part of an enzyme at which substrate binding occurs
An electrophoretic separation of lactate dehydrogenase isoenzymes that demonstrates and elevation in LD-1 and LD-2 in a “flipped” pattern is consistent with: Myocardial infarction
A serum sample is drawn in the emergency room from a 43 year old male and the following results were obtained:Laboratory Test Patient Results Reference Range CK 185 IU/L 15-160 IU/L AST 123 IU/L 0-48 IU/L CK-MB 4% 0-5%n Crushing injury to the thigh
Every enzymatic reaction follows a specific kinetics as it proceeds from enzyme + substrate to product + enzyme. As substrate is consumed, the reaction rate decreases and becomes directly proportional to the amount of substrate that is present in low con first-order kinetics
The oxidoreductase that is increased significantly during hemolytic anemia is: Lactate dehydrogenase
The most widely used method of isoenzyme analysis that allows the best discrimination between antigenically distinct isoenzymes derived from multiple-gene loci is: an immunochemical method
In the laboratory measurement of ALP, a chromogenic assay forms the basis of almost all current methods used for ALP analysis. The substrate in this assay is 4-nitrophenyl phosphate
The Michaelis-Menten constant is: KM
An enzyme assay during which a single measurement is taken at the termination of the enzymatic reaction is referred to as a: End Point assay
The serum enzyme that demonstrates an increase in activity 4-8 hours after an attack of acute pancreatitis, peaks at 24 hours and then returns to normal within a week is: Lipase
The most widely used ionization approach coupled with gas chromatography and used for comprehensive drug screening is: electron ionization
Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry is typically used for: determination of trace elements
Which type of ionization technique uses an electron beam to ionize the reagent gas and produce a reactive species as a result of ion molecule reactions? chemical
The soft ionization technique that uses a UV-absorbing compound upon which the analyte of interest is placed and eventually vaporized into a plume of ions directed into the mass analyzer is: matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization
which one of the following mass spectrometers does the fragmentation of ions take place after they have been separated by their mass-to-charge value in a first stage? In a tandem mass spectrometer
How is trapping-type spectrometry different from typical beam-type mass spectrometry? Trapping-type mass spectrometry uses an ion trap designed to collect ions in three dimensions instead of two dimensions as in a typical beam-type mass spectrometer
In a mass spectrometer, ion detection is typically accomplished through the use of an electron multiplier. This involves: a chain of dynodes that “multiplies” the number of electrons to provide a detectable signal.
In a mass spectrometer, the ion with the highest abundance in the mass spectrum that is assigned a relative abundance of 100% is referred to as the: base peak
Currently, the most widely used mass spectrometer, which is flexible, easy to use and relatively low cost is the: Quadrupole MS
