20S Immunoproteasome Activity Assay Kit (Fluorometric)
A plate-based fluorometric assay to measure the activity of the 20S immunoproteasome.
By: BioVision, Inc.
The 20S immunoproteasome is a specialized form of the proteasome, which is expressed during oxidative stress or by stimulation from proinflammatory cytokines. During oxidative stress and inflammatory processes, the catalytic subunits β1, β2 and β5 of the 20S proteasome core are replaced by the inducible subunits β1i/LMP2, β2i/MECL1 and β5i/LMP7, respectively. This allows the 20S immunoproteasome to cleave proteins differently as compared to the 20S proteasome due to a shift towards chymotrypsin-
BioVision's 20S Immunoproteasome Activity Assay Kit uses a plate-based fluorometric assay to measure the activity of the 20S immunoproteasome. In this assay, the 20S immunoproteasome cleaves a fluorogenic substrate to release 7-amino-4-methylcoumarin, a fluorescent compound that produces a stable signal at Ex/Em = 345/445 nm. The kit can detect as low as 0.02 µU (0.02 pmol substrate proteolysis per minute) of 20S immunoproteasome under assay conditions.
