DPP4 Assay Kit

Catalog #: 80204
Size: 96 reactions
$425
Background:
Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP4), also known as adenosine deaminase complexing protein 2, is a serine exopeptidase that cleaves X-proline dipeptides from the N-terminus of polypeptides. DPP4 plays a key role in glucose metabolism, immune regulation, signal transduction and apoptosis.
Description:
The Fluorogenic DPP4 Assay Kit is designed to measure DPP4 activity using purified DPP4 for screening and profiling applications. The key to the Fluorogenic DPP4 Assay Kit is the specific, fluorogenic substrate. Using this kit, only one simple step on a microtiter plate is required for DPP4 reactions; no time-consuming washing steps are required. The DPP fluorometric substrate is incubated with a sample containing DPP4 enzyme to produce a fluorophore that can then be measured using a fluorescence reader.
Synonym(s):
DPPIV, CD26, Dipeptidylpeptidase 4, ADCP2

Application Reference(s):
The effect of combined treatment with canagliflozin and teneligliptin on glucose intolerance in Zucker diabetic fatty rats (2015)

Notes:
The AMC standard is included so the researcher can quatitatively determine the specific activity of the enzyme using the AMC standard as a measure of how much AMC substrate was cleaved to release free AMC.
Warning(s):
Avoid freeze/thaw cycles
