|Product Overview :||Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) play an important role in the dynamic regulation of cAMP and cGMP signaling. PDE4D is a regulator of airway smooth-muscle contractility, and has been identified as a potential risk predictor for ischemic stroke. Additionally, PDE4D has been associated with asthma pathophysiology and bone formation. The PDE4D gene encodes at least 9 different isoforms. Phosphodiesterases catalyze the hydrolysis of the phosphodiester bond in dye-labeled cyclic monophosphates. Beads selectively bind the phosphate group in the nucleotide product. This increases the size of the nucleotide relative to unreacted cyclic monophosphate. In the polarization assay, dye molecules with absorption transition vectors parallel to the linearly-polarized excitation light are selectively excited. Dyes attached to the rapidly-rotating cyclic monophosphates will obtain random orientations and emit light with low polarization. Dyes attached to the slowly-rotating nucleotide-bead complexes will not have time to reorient and therefore will emit highly polarized light.|
