2-(4-Methylumbelliferyl)- α-D-N- acetylneuraminic acid sodium salt (4-MU-NANA)
4-MU-NANA is a fluorescent substrate for the enzymatic assay of neuraminidase. In this assay, neuraminidase catalyzes the hydrolyzation of 2'-(4-Methylumbelliferyl)-α-D-N-acetylneuraminic acid to N-acetylneuraminic acid and 4-Methylumbelliferone, a blue, fluorescent, soluble substance that can be detected fluorometrically.
This product is ideal for sensitively measuring activity and can be used to assess even the slightest amounts of neuraminidase activity in humans. Additionally, it can be used to identify patients who exhibit normal levels of activity or those who are deficient. Lower neuraminidase activity has been observed in cancer patients.
