Extraction methods are widely used for the colorimetric determination of non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA) in serum. NEFA are converted to their copper salts that are extracted into an organic solvent. The salts are then complexed with a dye for purposed of colorimetric measurement. Alternatively, extracted NEFA are titrated with standard alkali to an acid base indicator endpoint. These approaches are time consuming, hazardous and not easily automated. Wako has made extensive studies of NEFA quantitation and has succeeded in developing an original enzymatic method which is available in a series of individual reagents. This enzymatic method is accurate, precise, simple and fast. The need for an extraction step has been eliminated and the method can be automated.
The Wako enzymatic method relies upon the acylation of coenzyme A (CoA) by the fatty acids in the presence of added acyl-CoA synthetase (ACS). The acyl-CoA thus produced is oxidized by added acyl-CoA oxidase (ACOD) with generation of hydrogen peroxide, in the presence of peroxidase (POD) permits the oxidative condensation of 3-methy-N-ethyl-N(β-hydroxyethyl)-aniline (MEFA) with 4-aminoantipyrine to form a purple colored adduct which can be measured colorimetrically at 550 nm.
