Product Name SensoLyte ® 440 Cathepsin B Assay Kit *Fluorimetric*
Size 1 kit
Catalog # AS-72165
US$ $418

Cathepsins are a class of globular lysosomal proteases playing a vital role in mammalian cellular turnover. They degrade polypeptides and are distinguished by their substrate specificities. The cathepsin family consists of 12 cysteine proteases with broad exo- and endopeptidase activity, of which Cathepsin B is a member. Elevated levels of cathepsin B were detected in metastases and neurological disorders including Alzheimer's disease (AD).

The SensoLyte® 440 Cathepsin B Assay Kit provides a fluorogenic peptide for measurement of enzyme activity. This peptide releases the AMC (7-amino-4-methylcoumarin) fluorophore upon cathepsin B cleavage and can be detected with excitation at 354 nm and emission at 442 nm.

The kit contains:
• AMC based fluorogenic substrate (Ex/Em=354 nm/442 nm upon cleavage)
• Assay buffer
• Human liver Cathepsin B
• Inhibitor
• Fluorescence reference standard for calibration
• A detailed protocol

Kit size: 100 assays (96-well plate)
