FAP Assay Kit

Catalog #: 80210
Size: 96 reactions
$950
Background:
Fibroblast Activation Protein, or FAP, is a 170 kDa dimer with dipeptidase activity. FAP expression is seen on activated stromal fibroblasts in >90% of all human carcinomas, suggesting a role in the development, growth and metastasis of carcinomas. It is also involved in the control of wound healing and tissue repair.
Description:
The Fluorogenic FAP Assay Kit is designed to measure FAP activity using purified FAP for screening and profiling applications. The key to the Fluorogenic FAP Assay Kit is the fluorogenic substrate. Using this kit, only one simple step on a microtiter plate is required for FAP reactions. The DPP fluorometric substrate is incubated with a sample containing FAP enzyme to produce a fluorophore that can then be measured using a fluorescence reader.
Synonym(s):
Fibroblast Activation Protein, seprase
Supplied As:
Supplied in a convenient 96-well format, with purified FAP enzyme, DPP substrate, and DPP assay buffer for 100 enzyme reactions.
Contraindications:
DMSO >1%, strong acids or bases, ionic detergents, high salt
Format:
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.

Application(s):
Great for studying enzyme kinetics and screening small molecular inhibitors for drug discovery and HTS applications.

Application Reference(s):
Pharmacological characterization of ZYDPLA1, a novel long-acting dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor -4ZYDPLA1 (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
