|Product Overview:||Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) play an important role in dynamic regulation of cAMP and cGMP signaling. PDE4C selectively hydrolyzes cAMP and is a candidate biomarker for human glioma. Research suggests that PDE4C functions as a tumor suppressor, and downregulation of PDE4C in glioma patients correlates with poor prognosis.|
|Description:||The PDE4C1 Assay Kit is designed for identification of PDE4C1 inhibitors using fluorescence polarization. The assay is based on the binding of a fluorescent nucleotide monophosphate generated by PDE4C1 to the binding agent. The key to the PDE4C1 Assay Kit is the specific binding agent. Using this kit, only two simple steps on a microtiter plate are required for PDE4C1 reactions. First, the fluorescently labeled cAMP is incubated with a sample containing PDE4C1 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.|
|Applications:||Great for studying enzyme kinetics and screening small molecular inhibitors for drug discovery and HTS applications.|
