San Jose, CA, June 08, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- At the 2007 Experimental Biology conference in Washington, DC, AnaSpec prepared a technical poster entitled, "A Sensitive Fluorimetric Assay for Detection of beta-Secretase Activity Using a Novel FRET Peptide Substrate."
The poster documented the following findings:
• A highly sensitive SensoLyte™ 520 beta-secretase assay kit based on a HiLyte Fluor™ 488/QXL™ 520 FRET substrate has been developed by AnaSpec.
• The longer excitation and emission wavelengths of HiLyte Fluor™488 minimize the interference from autofluorescence and absorbance of test compounds.
• This SensoLyte™ 520 b-secretase assay kit is capable of continuous, homogeneous monitoring of the enzymatic reaction.
• IC50 value for an inhibitor determined with SensoLyte™ 520 b-secretase assay kit were consistent with published data.
