Multiple Applications of Enzymes in Disease Diagnosis
SummaryEnzymes are biocatalysts produced by living cells in organisms, most of which are usually globular proteins. These enzymes can effectively catalyze various biochemical reactions and promote the metabolism of organisms under normal human conditions. Life activities such as digestion, absorption, breathing, exercise, and reproduction are all enzymatic reactions. Therefore, enzymes are the basis for cell survival.

Enzymes are biocatalysts produced by living cells in organisms, most of which are usually globular proteins. These enzymes can effectively catalyze various biochemical reactions and promote the metabolism of organisms under normal human conditions. Life activities such as digestion, absorption, breathing, exercise, and reproduction are all enzymatic reactions. Therefore, enzymes are the basis for cell survival.
There are many kinds of enzymes in the human body, and more than 3,000 enzymes have been discovered, such as pepsin, trypsin and other hydrolytic enzymes. The protein that the human body takes in from food must be hydrolyzed into amino acids under the action of pepsin. Under the action of other enzymes, more than 20 kinds of amino acids can be selected and then reorganized into various other proteins required by the human body. Many complex reactions occurred during the whole process. It can be said that without enzymes, biological metabolism will not continue, and the entire colorful biological community in nature will disappear. Now we know the importance of enzymes in organisms, which is why enzymes can be used for clinical diagnosis.
Blood Lipids Tests
Blood lipids refer to a group of fatty substances present in the blood, mainly including cholesterol and triglycerides. Cholesterol circulating in the blood usually comes in two forms: low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). As LDL accumulates in the container, it may cause LDL to be "bad" and may cause blockage. High-density lipoproteins are called "good" because they help reduce bad cholesterol in the blood. Triglycerides come from food and are mainly used as energy sources. Abnormal blood lipid levels are usually associated with many diseases, such as hypertension, coronary arteries, hypothyroidism, type 2 diabetes, obesity, pancreatitis, etc. Enzymes involved in lipid metabolism have been extensively studied. Creative Enzymes provides a variety of enzymes for blood lipid test from different sources to help you in your research.
Liver Function Test
Liver function tests are essential for the early diagnosis of liver disease and the treatment of patients with liver dysfunction. A variety of enzymatic reactions have been developed to detect the presence of abnormal substances associated with different types of liver diseases or liver damage. Creative Enzymes has been supporting the clinical and research uses of liver function assessment through its diagnostic enzyme products.
Kidney Function Test
The main function of the kidneys is to remove waste and excess fluid from the blood by producing urine. The pancreas is responsible for the production of digestive enzymes and insulin. Early kidney and pancreas dysfunction did not show obvious symptoms, which may lead to severe dysfunction. Therefore, the early diagnosis of kidney and pancreas has attracted widespread attention. Since the chemicals, enzymes and other compounds secreted from the kidneys and pancreas are generally stable in quality and quantity, the abnormal presence of specific entities in the fluid or elevated levels of certain enzymes indicates an abnormal state of the kidneys or pancreas. For example, inflammation of the kidneys leads to increased levels of amylase in the blood, which can be determined by maltase and glucoamylase. Urease is a key enzyme used to detect renal failure by measuring urea content. Creative Enzymes has been serving kidney & pancreas function diagnostic enzymes for years in the global market. More about kidney function test can be reached at Creative Enzymes’s website.
It is obvious from the above that enzymes play an irreplaceable important role in the field of clinical diagnosis and treatment. As a part of bioengineering, the important functions and research results of enzymes have been recognized worldwide. Making full use of the catalytic function, expanding the scope of application, and improving the application efficiency of enzymes have become our main goals. Creative Enzymes, as an enzyme manufacturer, are endeavoring to do so.
