Looking for an inhibitor for a NADH-dependent protein

If it doesn't inhibit your enzyme ), try 0.05 to 0.10% sodium azide.
But you have to test first its effect on your enzyme; some enzymes drop dead
immediately upon exposure to azide. Your membrane extract probably contains
the enzymes responsible for the oxidative phosphorylation.

Cheers,

Achim

coupled assay to measure Pyrvate formation (using LDHase). One of the
proteins of my system is a transmembrane protein, and I have to use it as a
membrane extract. The problem is that in the membrane there seems to exist a
second protein which interferes with the coupled assay, because it consumes
NADH by a different and unknown pathway (I have not found yet the substrate
being reduced). The solution would be very simple if I can find any general
irreversible inhibitor for proteins which use NADH.
