  • Product overview

    In Abcam's Myeloperoxidase (MPO) Activity Assay Kit (Fluorometric), MPO catalyzes the production of NaClO from H2O2 and NaCl. Subsequently, NaClO will react stoichiometrically with Aminophenyl fluorescein (APF) to generate fluorescein, which has a strong fluorescence and can be detected at Ex/Em = 485/525 nm. The kit provides a rapid, simple, sensitive, and reliable test suitable as a high throughput assay of MPO activity. This kit can be used to detect MPO activity as low as 0.5 µU per well

  • Notes

    Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a peroxidase enzyme (EC 1.11.1.7) most abundantly present in neutrophil granulocytes. It is a green hemoprotein found in neutrophils and monocytes that catalyzes the reaction of hydrogen peroxide and halide ions to form cytotoxic acids and other intermediates that play a role in the oxygen-dependent killing of tumor cells and microorganisms. Its heme pigment causes the green color in secretions rich in neutrophils, such as pus and some forms of mucus. Furthermore, it can oxidize tyrosine to a tyrosyl radical using hydrogen peroxide as an oxidizing agent.

Properties

  • FunctionPart of the host defense system of polymorphonuclear leukocytes. It is responsible for microbicidal activity against a wide range of organisms. In the stimulated PMN, MPO catalyzes the production of hypohalous acids, primarily hypochlorous acid in physiologic situations, and other toxic intermediates that greatly enhance PMN microbicidal activity.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in MPO are the cause of myeloperoxidase deficiency (MPD) [MIM:254600]. MPD is an autosomal recessive defect that results in disseminated candidiasis.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peroxidase family. XPO subfamily.
  • Cellular localizationLysosome.

Thank you for your enquiry regarding ab111749.

We have always used with fresh samples only with this assay. We know of scientists who did store the homogenates in aliquots at -80°C for a short while before use but since we don’t our...

The homogenized samples can be stored in aliquots at -80°C, w/o addition of any other components to the assay buffer. It would be preferable though to use fresh samples.

This kit can be used with all mammalian samples including rats.

I have updated our datasheet accordingly.

This is an enzymatic activity assay. Enzymes need some ions/cofactors to function and EDTA being a chelator will chelate these co-factors (specifically Mg++ and Ca++), leading to the enzyme becoming non-functional.

Thank you for your inquiry and your patience with this reply.

I heard back from the supplying laboratory that the concentration of the positive control MPO does not vary from lot to lot. But unfortunately, they could not disclose the concent...

For this assay kit, the client can either use a black opaque bottom plate or, for even more efficiency, use a white opaque bottom plate. One would not use a clear transparent plate.



I am awaiting a reply from the lab which supplies this kit. However I believe you can use a plate with either clear well bottoms or opaque well bottoms to detect fluorometric signal. Although you would use a clear bottom well if you need to v...

Thank you for contacting us.

I would recommend using fresh tissue samples.

Other peroxidases will not be able to produce the same intermediates required for this assay. Therefore it is specific for MPO.


I hope this infor...

For tissues, start with about 10 mg tissue with 400 ul of assay buffer for homogenization. There are no specific guidelines recommended for muscle tissue in particular.
