|Product Overview:||Acid phosphatases (AP) dephosphorylate phosphate groups from phosphate esters under acid conditions. Different acid phosphatase isozymes are found in different organs, and their serum levels are used as a diagnostic for disease in the corresponding organs. Elevated prostatic acid phosphatase levels may indicate the presence of prostate cancer and elevated tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase levels may indicate the bone disease. Acid Phosphatase Assay Kit is a high sensitivity, simple, direct and HTS-ready colorimetric assay designed to measure AP activity in serum and other samples. It is suitable for research and drug discovery. The kit uses p-nitrophenyl phosphate (pNPP) as a phosphatase substrate which turns yellow (λmax = 405 nm) when dephosphorylated by AP. The kit can detect μU acid phosphatase activity in samples.|
|Applications:||Phosphate concentrations between 1 μM and 1 mM, with a lower limit of detection of approximately 0.1 nmol, can be directly determined.|
|Kit Components:||AP Assay Buffer; pNPP Substrate (10 TAB); AP Enzyme; Stop Solution|
