SensoLyte ® Rh110 Cathepsin G Assay Kit *Fluorimetric*
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. Cathepsin G is the serine protease released by neutrophils upon their activation. Cathepsin G is currently being explored as a target for anti-inflammatory and anti-infective drugs.
The SensoLyte® Rh110 Cathepsin G Assay Kit provides a convenient assay for high throughput screening of enzyme inhibitors or for continuous assay of enzyme activity utilizing a fluorogenic peptide. Upon enzyme cleavage, the peptide releases the Rh110 fluorophore with bright green fluorescence that can be detected at Ex/Em=496/520 nm.
The kit contains: • Rh110 based fluorogenic substrate (Ex/Em=490/520 nm upon cleavage) • Assay buffer • Human Cathepsin G • Inhibitor • Fluorescence reference standard for calibration • A detailed protocol
