ABSTRACT
The most common methods for determination of uric acid in serum are based on the use of the enzyme uricase. Uric acid is enzymatically oxidized by oxygen to produce hydrogen peroxide, allantoin, and carbon dioxide. The four most often applied uricase methods are critically compared in this review.

    Humans have higher serum uric acid levels than other mammalian species owing to the genetic silencing of the hepatic enzyme uricase that metabolizes uric acid into allantoin. Urate (the ionized form of uric acid) is generated from purine metabolism and it may provide antioxidant defense in the...
