DPP9 Assay Kit

Catalog #: 80209
Size: 96 reactions
Dipeptidyl peptidase-9 (DPP9) is a serine exopeptidase that cleaves X-proline dipeptides from the N-terminus of polypeptides. DPP9 exhibits similar activity to that of DPP4 but unlike DPP4, DPP9 is not membrane bound. DPP9 activity has been linked to several diseases, including type 2 diabetes, obesity and cancer.
The Fluorogenic DPP9 Assay Kit is designed to measure DPP9 activity using purified DPP9 for screening and profiling applications. The key to the Fluorogenic DPP9 Assay Kit is the fluorogenic substrate. Using this kit, only one simple step on a microtiter plate is required for DPP9 reactions. The fluorometric substrate is incubated with a sample containing DPP9 enzyme to produce a fluorophore that can then be measured using a fluorescence reader.
Dipeptidylpeptidase 9, DPPIX, DPP
Supplied As:
Supplied in a convenient 96-well format, with purified DPP9 enzyme, DPP substrate, and DPP assay buffer for 100 enzyme reactions.
DMSO >1%, strong acids or bases, ionic detergents, high salt
Instructions for use:
See assay kit data sheet for detailed protocol.
Storage / Stability:

At least 12 months from date of receipt, when stored as directed. Kit components require different storage conditions. Be sure to store each component at the proper temperature upon arrival.

Great for studying enzyme kinetics and screening small molecular inhibitors for drug discovery and HTS applications.

Application Reference(s): 
1. Screening of a natural compound library identifies emodin, a natural compound from Rheum palmatum Linn that inhibits DPP4 (2017)

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.
Avoid freeze/thaw cycles
