SensoLyte® AFC Plasmin Activity Assay Kit *Fluorimetric*
Plasmin belongs to the family of serine proteases. It plays a key role in fibrinolysis by dissolving fibrin in blood clots. Besides fibrinolysis, plasmin is also involved in such physiological and pathological processes as wound healing, liver repair, and the maintenance of liver homeostasis.
The SensoLyte® AFC Plasmin Activity Assay Kit provides a convenient assay for high throughput screening of plasmin inhibitors and inducers or for continuous assay of plasmin activity. The assay utilizes a fluorogenic peptide, which upon enzyme cleavage releases the AFC (7-amido-4-trifluoromethylcoumarin) fluorophore. The fluorescent signal can be measured at Ex/ Em =380 nm/500 nm. This assay can detect picogram level of plasmin activity. Assays are performed in a convenient 96-well microplate format.
