  • Product overview

    Abcam Calcineurin Phosphatase Activity Assay Kit (Colorimetric) (ab139461) is a complete non-radioactive colorimetric assay kit designed for measuring calcineurin phosphatase activity through kinetic assay or for inhibitor screening. The activity is determined using the RII phosphopeptide substrate, the most efficient and selective peptide known for calcineurin, and detection of free phosphate released is based on the classic malachite green assay.

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Calcium-dependent, calmodulin-stimulated protein phosphatase. This subunit may have a role in the calmodulin activation of calcineurin. Dephosphorylates DNM1L, HSPB1 and SSH1.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the PPP phosphatase family. PP-2B subfamily.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Colocalizes with ACTN1 and MYOZ2 at the Z line in heart and skeletal muscle.
