A Novel Fluorimetric Assay for the Detection of TACE (a-Secretase)
Published: April 16, 2008
To facilitate high throughput screening of TACE inhibitors, AnaSpec synthesized a novel peptide substrate for TACE using QXL™ 520/5-FAM FRET pair. Using this FRET substrate, AnaSpec developed a new kit – the SensoLyte™ 520 TACE Activity Assay. This kit can be used to detect the activity of the enzyme and for screening of TACE inhibitors. It is highly sensitive and can detect subnanogram amounts of enzyme.
