SIRT2 (Sirtuin2) Fluorogenic Assay Kit

Catalog #: 50087
Size: 32 reactions
The Fluorogenic SIRT2 Assay Kit is a complete assay system designed to measure Sirtuin 2 (SIRT2) activity for screening and profiling applications. It comes in a convenient 96-well format, with all the reagents necessary for 32 fluorescent SIRT2 activity measurements*.The kit includes purified SIRT2 enzyme and a SIRT inhibitor, Nicotinamide, for use as a positive and negative control, respectively. The Fluorogenic SIRT2 Assay Kit is based on a unique fluorogenic substrate and developer combination. This assay method eliminates dealing with the radioactivity, extraction, and chromatography aspects of traditional assays. Using this kit, only two simple steps on a microtiter plate are needed to analyze the SIRT2 activity level. First, the SIRT fluorometric substrate (SIRT substrate 1), containing an acetylated lysine side chain, is incubated with purified SIRT2 enzyme. The deacetylation sensitizes the substrate so subsequent treatment with the Lysine Developer produces a fluorophore that can then be measured using a fluorescence reader.
