BioVision Inc CETP Activity Fluorometric Assay Kit II: Fluorometric Assay for Measuring Cholesteryl Ester Transfer Protein (CETP) Activity in animal plasma, serum or recombinant protein. Accurate, Convenient & Reliable. 100 Assays
Manufacturer: BioVision Inc K595100
CETP Activity Fluorometric Assay Kit II: Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) is a plasma protein that transfers a cholesteryl ester from HDL to LDL or VLDL in exchange for a triglyceride. HDL transports cholesterol to the liver for excretion or to steroidogenic tissues for steroid synthesis. HDL also plays an important role in the reverse cholesterol transport pathway, removing cholesterol from lipid-filled macrophages, protecting against atherosclerosis. BioVision's CETP Activity Fluorometric Assay Kit uses a self-quenched fluorescent neutral lipid that can be measured when transferred to an acceptor molecule. The fluorometric intensity is directly proportional to the amount of neutral lipid transfer. Rabbit serum is provided as a positive control and CETP inhibitor Torcetrapib is included for assay validation. This Assay Kit, in addition to measuring activity in serum, is also suitable for testing activity of recombinant protein. BioVision charges an Ice pack fee on order.
