BioVision IncSupplier Diversity Partner Cathepsin D Activity Fluorometric Assay Kit: Cathepsin D Activity Assay Kit: Rapid & Convenient Fluorometric Assay to Measure Cathepsin D Activity within 1-2 hrs. 100 Assays. DFS Item

Manufacturer:  BioVision IncSupplier Diversity Partner K143100

Apoptosis can be mediated by mechanisms other than the traditional caspase-mediated cleavage cascade. There is growing recognition that alternative proteolytic enzymes such as the lysosomal cathepsin proteases may initiate or propagate proapoptotic signals. Cathepsins are lysosomal enzymes that are also used as sensitive markers in various toxicological investigations. The Cathepsin-D Activity Assay kit is a fluorescence-based assay that utilizes the preferred cathepsin-D substrate sequence GKPILFFRLK(Dnp)-D-R-NH2) labeled with MCA. Cell lysates or other samples that contain cathepsin-D will cleave the synthetic substrate to release fluorescence, which can then easily be quantified using a fluorometer or fluorescence plate reader at Ex/Em = 328/460 nm. BioVision charges an Ice pack and Insulated Container fee of $25.00 for each order.
