Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  ATPase Assay
Description:  The ATP hydrolysis activity of S. aureus DNA gyrase is measured by coupling the production of ADP through pyruvate kinase/lactate dehydrogenase to the oxidation of NADH. This method has been described previously (Tamura and Gellert, 1990, J. Biol. Chem., 265, 21342).ATPase assays are carried out at 30 C. in buffered solutions containing 100 mM TRIS pH 7.6, 1.5 mM MgCl2, 150 mM KCl. The coupling system contains final concentrations of 2.5 mM phosphoenol pyruvate, 200 μM nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH), 1 mM DTT, 30 ug/ml pyruvate kinase, and 10 ug/ml lactate dehydrogenase. The enzyme (90 nM final concentration) and a DMSO solution (3% final concentration) of a compound is added. The reaction mixture is allowed to incubate for 10 minutes at 30 C. The reaction is initiated by the addition of ATP to a final concentration of 0.9 mM, and the rate of NADH disappearance is monitored at 340 nanometers over the course of 10 minutes.
