Chitotriosidase Activity Assay Kit (Fluorometric); Chitotriosidase (CHIT1 or chitinase-1), is a mammalian enzyme belonging to glycosyl hydrolase-18 family (EC 188.8.131.52). CHIT1 plays a pivotal role in infectious disease such as malaria & fungi infectious. Increased CHIT1 activity has also been found in patients suffering diseases such as bronchial asthma & atherosclerosis. CHIT1 has been used as a valuable diagnostic biomarker for monitoring the therapeutic efficacy of treatments for Gaucher¿s disease or ?-glucocerebrosidase deficiency. BioVision's Chitotriosidase Activity Assay, utilizes a fluorogenic substrate that can be hydrolyzed by chitinase & a set of proprietary assay buffers that can distinguish specific CHIT1 activity from other hydrolases including Acidic Mammalian Chitinase. The kit provides a simple, specific, sensitive assay that can detect as low as 0.2 mU/ml of CHIT1 in a variety of biological samples. BioVision charges an Ice pack fee for each order.
