TL;DR: Total chromogen, true, and AutoAnalyzer methods of measuring serum and urine creatinine by the Jaffe reaction were investigated and their precision, recovery, and sample stability determined.
Abstract: Total chromogen, true, and AutoAnalyzer methods of measuring serum and urine creatinine by the Jaffe reaction were investigated. Some factors influencing this reaction were examined. These included wavelength, blank, linearity, and conditions of color development. Modifications of the three methods were made and their precision, recovery, and sample stability determined. The interference of ketones and glucose were measured. Finally, the values obtained by the three methods on the same samples of serum and urine were compared statistically.

TL;DR: Data provide the first evidence of a direct link between extent of phosphorylation of these proteins at sites recognized by the antibodies and activity of the enzymes in electrically stimulated muscle and in muscle of rats running on the treadmill.
Abstract: AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is activated during muscle contraction in response to the increase in AMP and decrease in phosphocreatine (PCr). Once activated, AMPK has been proposed to phosph...

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: By serial daily creatinine analyses over long experimental periods on a metabolic ward, "timing" artifact in 24 hour collections was minimized; this is an important source of error if single 24 hour or random samples are used.
