Abcam's GST Activity Assay Kit (Fluorometric) provides a simple, fluorescence-based in vitro assay for detecting the GST activity using fluorescence plate reader. The assay utilizes monochlorobimane (MCB), a dye that reacts with glutathione. The free form of MCB is almost nonfluorescent, whereas the dye fluoresces in blue (Ex/Em = 380/461 nm) after reaction with glutathione catalysed by GST. The change in fluorescence overtime allows for an easy measurement of the sample GST level.
The kit can detect GST activity in crude cell lysate or purified protein fraction, and also quantitate GST-tagged fusion protein.

Glutathione S-transferase (GST) is a family of enzymes that play an important role in detoxification of xenobiotics. GST catalyzes the formation of the thiol group of glutathione to electrophilic xenobiotics. It utilizes glutathione to scavenge potentially toxic compounds including those produced as a result of oxidative stress and is part of the defense mechanism against the mutagenic, carcinogenic and toxic effects of such compounds.
