Quantitation of Lipase Activity from a Bee: An Introductory Enzyme Experiment.
Farley, Kathleen A.; Jones, Marjorie A.
Journal of Chemical Education, v66 n6 p524-26 Jun 1989
This four-hour experiment uses a bee as a source of the enzyme which is reacted with a radioactive substrate to determine the specific activity of the enzyme. Uses thin layer chromatography, visible spectrophotometry, and liquid scintillation spectrometry (if not available a Geiger-Muller counter can be substituted). (MVL)
