Introducing cADDis: The Simplest Assay in the World for Detecting cAMP
Cyclic AMP (cAMP) is the prototypical second messenger. The major receptor in eukaryotic cells, cAMP-dependent Protein Kinase (PKA), is ubiquitous. cAMP affects many different physiological and biochemical processes including the activity of kinases.

Save time and money by switching to cADDis, a simple and robust assay for Gs and Gi signaling, without the need for co-factors, cell lysis, or complex liquid handling. cADDis is genetically-
Gs detection: Kinetics. Dose responses. Bright and reliable signals.
Measure kinetics and dose responses of Gs-mediated cAMP production with large and consistent fluorescence changes. cADDis is extremely bright with remarkable signal to noise (Z' > 0.95). Examplary data available on request for: cADDis in live HEK293 cells stimulated with isoproterenol, a selective agonist of ß-adrenergic receptors.
Gi detection: Forskolin-free
cADDis detects Gi-mediated decreases in cAMP production, in real time, without the need for forskolin or IBMX. The cADDis Gi assay yields Z' values > 0.85. Forego the forskolin and measure biologically relevant Gi signaling using cADDis. Examplary data available on request for: cADDis in live HEK293 cells stimulated with quinpirole, a selective agonist of dopaminergic D2 receptors.
