Cathepsin K Inhibitor Screening Kit (ab185439) uses the ability of active Cathepsin K to cleave the synthetic AFC based peptide substrate torelease AFC, which can be easily quantified using a fluorometer or fluorescence microplate reader. In the presence of a Cathepsin K-specific inhibitor, the cleavage of this substrate is reduced/abolished resulting in decrease or total loss of the AFC fluorescence. This simple and high-throughput adaptable assay kit can be used to screen/study/characterize potential inhibitors of Cathepsin K.
