About Uric Acid

Measurements of Uric Acid are used in the diagnosis and treatment of numerous renal and metabolic disorders, including renal failure, gout,
leukemia, psoriasis, starvation, or other wasting conditions, and of patients receiving cytotoxic drugs.


Uric acid can be determined by direct measurement, by measurement of oxygen consumed, or by measurement of hydrogen peroxide produced by the uricase reaction. Several methods utilize coupled enzyme reactions to detect the hydrogen peroxide produced by the uricase reaction. Fossati et al
proposed a method that utilized the well-established Trinder reaction to measure the hydrogen peroxide produced, and a substituted phenol to
enhance sensitivity.

This Uric Acid procedure is a modification of the Fossati method. Uric acid is converted by uricase to allantoin and hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen
peroxide reacts with 4-aminoantipyrine (4-AAP) in the presence of N,N-bis(4-sulfobutyl)-3,5-dimethylaniline, disodium salt (MADB) to produce a
chromophore which is read bichromatically at 660/800 nm. The amount of dye formed is proportional to the uric acid concentration in the sample.
