Abstract

A technique has been developed to determine ATP and pyrophosphate from one aliquot of platelets. The sample which contains both ATP and pyrophosphate was used to generate NAD$\sp{+}$ through a sequence of enzymatic reactions starting with ATP. The NAD$\sp{+}$ generated was condensed with acetone to form a fluorescent product. Prior to the formation of this product, pyrophosphate was separated from NAD$\sp{+}$ by passage of the reaction mixture through a Dowex-1 (Cl$\sp{-}$) resin and subsequent elution with HCl. Recoveries for both assays ranged from 98-106%, and coefficients of variation for both within-run and between-run studies for both assays were below 7%.Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
