In Abcam's Granzyme B Inhibitor Screening Assay Kit, active human Granzyme B enzyme hydrolyzes the specific substrate to release the quench of fluorescent group, which can be detected fluorometrically at Ex/Em = 380/500 nm. In the presence of potent Granzyme B Inhibitor, the hydrolyzation of substrate will be impeded. The Kit provides a rapid, simple, sensitive and reliable test suitable for high throughput screening of Granzyme B inhibitors or characterize/study Granzyme B inhibitors. Inhibitor control, Ac-IEPD-CHO is included to compare the efficacy of test inhibitors.
Granzyme B (GZMB, EC number 184.108.40.206) also known as Granzyme-2 is a serine protease stored in the granules of activated cytotoxic T cells and NK cells. Upon target cell contact, Granzyme B is directionally exocytosed and with the assistance of perforin enters the target cell. With its unique substrate specificity (Granzyme B prefers an aspartic acid residue at the P1 site of its substrates), Granzyme B processes and activates various pro-caspases thereby inducing apoptosis in the target cell.
