Description
Features
  • Screen for inhibitors of ovine COX-2
  • Directly measure prostaglandin production
  • Assay 16 samples in duplicate
  • Plate-based colorimetric measurement (405-420 nm)

COX-1 and COX-2 catalyze the production of the prostaglandin (PG), thromboxane, and prostacyclin precursor PGH2. COX-2 is responsible for the biosynthesis of PGs under acute inflammatory conditions. This inducible COX-2 is believed to be the target enzyme for the anti-inflammatory activity of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The COX-2 (ovine) Inhibitor Screening Assay directly measures PGF (Item No. 16010) by SnCl2 reduction of COX-2-derived PGH2 (Item No. 17020) produced in the COX-2 reaction. The prostanoid product is quantified via enzyme immunoassay (EIA) using a broadly specific antiserum that binds to all the major PG compounds. This assay includes ovine COX-2 allowing the user to screen specific inhibitors. This assay is an excellent tool that can be used for general inhibitor screening, or to eliminate false positive leads generated by less specific methods.

Needed but not supplied: Please download the kit booklet to verify if UltraPure Water (Milli-Q or equivalent) or any other components are needed for this assay.
