What is the Aldolase assay used for?
Aldolase is an enzyme responsible for converting glucose into energy.
Elevated levels of Aldolase in the blood can be found in individuals with skeletal muscle damage and liver disease. In skeletal muscle diseases, damaged cells cause the release of Aldolase into the blood. Levels also rise in non-disease conditions e.g. injury and gangrene, however remain normal in situations where weakness is caused by a neurological disease e.g. multiple sclerosis. Aldolase measurements can therefore be used to determine the root cause of muscle weakness.
The Randox assay is suitable for the quantitative determination of Aldolase in serum and plasma.
