Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) play an important role in dynamic regulation of cAMP and cGMP signaling. PDE1C is a calmodulin-dependent PDE that is expressed principally in human myocardium.
The PDE1C Assay Kit is designed for identification of PDE1C inhibitors using fluorescence polarization. The assay is based on the binding of a fluorescent nucleotide monophosphate generated by PDE1C to the binding agent. The key to the PDE1C Assay Kit is the specific binding agent. Using this kit, only two simple steps on a microtiter plate are required for PDE1C reactions. First, the fluorescently labeled cAMP is incubated with a sample containing PDE1C for 1 hour. Second, a binding agent is added to the reaction mix to produce a change in fluorescent polarization that can then be measured using a fluorescence reader.
Great for studying enzyme kinetics and screening small molecular inhibitors for drug discovery and HTS applications.
