4-Methylumbelliferyl a-L-idopyranosiduronic acid sodium salt
4-Methylumbelliferyl alpha-L-idopyranosiduronic acid sodium salt is a carbohydrate acid and organic sodium salt applied as an indicator. It is the fluorogenic substrate used in assays of α-L-Iduronidase and iduronate-2-sulfatase for identifying Hurler syndrome, also called mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I). The disorder is characterized by α -L iduronidase enzyme deficiency, resulting in the buildup of glucosaminoglycans. Tests measure the chemical products 4-MU-α-IdoA or fluorophate 4-MU emitted following the enzymatic action of 4-Methylumbelliferyl alpha-L-idopyranosiduronic acid sodium salt. The substance is a white crystalline powder and is soluble in ethanol, methanol and water.
