PDE1C Mouse Assay Kit

Catalog #: 61312
Size: 96 reactions

Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) play an important role in the dynamic regulation of cAMP and cAMP signaling. Mouse PDE1C, also known as cAMP-inhibited phosphodiesterase, has been implicated in cardiovascular function and fertility. 

Phosphodiesterases catalyze the hydrolysis of the phosphodiester bond in dye-labeled cyclic monophosphates.  Beads selectively bind the phosphate group in the nucleotide product.  This increases the size of the nucleotide relative to unreacted cyclic monophosphate.  In the polarization assay, dye molecules with absorption transition vectors parallel to the linearly-polarized excitation light are selectively excited.  Dyes attached to the rapidly-rotating cyclic monophosphates will obtain random orientations and emit light with low polarization.  Dyes attached to the slowly-rotating nucleotide-bead complexes will not have time to reorient and therefore will emit highly polarized light.


The Mouse PDE1C Assay Kit is designed for identification of inhibitors of Mouse PDE1C using fluorescence polarization. The assay is based on the binding of a fluorescent nucleotide monophosphate generated by Mouse PDE1C to the binding agent.

The Mouse PDE1C Assay Kit comes in a convenient 96-well format, with purified Mouse PDE1C enzyme, fluorescently labeled substrate (cAMP), binding agent, and PDE assay buffer for 100 enzyme reactions. The key to the Mouse PDE1C Assay Kit is the specific binding agent. Using this kit, only two simple steps on a microtiter plate are required for Mouse PDE1C reactions. First, the fluorescently labeled cAMP is incubated with a sample containing Mouse PDE1C for 1 hour. Second, a binding agent is added to the reaction mix to produce a change in fluorescent polarization that can then be measured using a fluorescence reader equipped for the measurement of fluorescence polarization.
