|Product Overview:||CHIA Assay Kit (Fluorometric) is used for the quantitative measurement of acidic mammalian chitinase (AMCase) activity in a culture supernatant of stimulated pulmonary epithelial cells, several tissue extracts and other biological samples.|
|Description:||The glycosyl hydrolase family is quite large, with over 100 families. Acidic mammalian chitinase (AMCase) and chitotriosidase-1 are enzymatically active true chitinases in a member of the glycosyl hydrolase-18 family, identified by EC 188.8.131.52. In mammals, only these two enzymes cleave N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosamine (1->4)-beta linkages in chitodextrins and chitin, the second most abundant biopolymer that can be found in the cell walls of fungi, micro-filarial sheaths of helminths, and exoskeletons of insects and crustaceans. Other memberincluded in this family are chitinase-like molecules, e.g. YKL-40/Chitinase-3-like-1 and YKL-39/chitinase-3-like-2, that are thought to lack the ability to hydrolyze the chitin linkages, but retain chitin-binding activity and act more like connective tissue proteins, and immediate early gene products.|
