This assay candetect 10 to 1000 pmol of Acetyl CoA (with detection limit ˜0.4 μM). If you are able to optimize the amount of lysate to obtain Acetyl CoA levels within the detection limit this product should detect it in HEK 293.
This kit has been specifically designed to detect acetyl CoA and not for malonyl-CoA.
Sample color does not interfere with fluorescence detection.
Only free CoA will initially be quenched in the first step. Then only the Acetyl CoA will get converted to CoA due to the specific enzymes used. So there should be very minimal interference by any other CoAs.
As long as you can use the deproteinization protocol along with the bead beater, it should be fine.
Sorry, the spectrophotometer cannot be used
It is not the best case scenario to freeze samples repeatedly before performing the assay. However, if you need to freeze the samples, it would be possible after separating the sample from the KClO4 pellet.
Mitochonrial lysate can be assayed by Kit-0036.we recommended to perform a pilot experiment with a range of dilutions of the sample to determine the optimal concentration/dilution of sample which gives the best results in the linear range of the standard curve.
This kit can be used with frozen rat tissues.
The sample can be stored at -80 degree centigrade once prepared. However, we recommend to use the sample immediately after preparation for maximum efficiency.
The assay measures relative amounts of acetyl CoA in samples indirectly, compared to a standard included with the kit, by converting the acetyl CoA to CoA, and then using the resulting CoA to reduce NAD to NADH, which in turn reacts with the probe to generate a fluorescent signal.
In this particular assay the probe is specific to just the NADH.
The deproteinization approach, though not as sensitive as the sample prep, would still benefit from using PCA rather than the 10 kDa spin filters. But you can use the spin filters if you do not have the option of using PCA.
Deproteinization is recommended for cells in culture.
Yes it is very crucial to do the sample prep exactly as recommended as Acetyl CoA is very sensitive to degradation and you risk the chance of inefficient results if you make changes to the protocol.
In principle, eliminating the quenching and conversion step will allow you to measure CoA alone. However, the kit was not produced nor validated for this purpose, so we cannot guarantee that it will work, nor do we have a CoA standard that has been validated with this method to provide with the kit.
