Overview

  • Product name

    Cytosolic Phospholipase A2 Assay Kit
  • Detection method

    Colorimetric
  • Sample type

    Cell culture extracts, Tissue Extracts
  • Assay type

    Enzyme activity (quantitative)
  • Species reactivity

    Reacts with: Mammals, Other species
  • Product overview

    Cytosolic Phospholipase A2 Assay Kit (ab133090) can be used to determine the activity of cytosolic Phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) in purified preparations, cell cultures, or tissue homogenates. Use of this assay with preparations containing more than one type of PLA2 will result in the measurement of total PLA2 activity rather than cPLA2 alone.

    If you want to detect secretory PLA2, we recommend using Secretory Phospholipase Assay Kit (ab133089).

  • Platform

    Microplate reader

Answer

Since this is an enzymatic assays, the kit components should not be ice cold when it is performed. However, the DNTB should be kept on ice. If you do not have access to dry nitrogen gas, you can use a vacuum centrifuge to evaporate the ethanol from the substrate.

Answer

Thank you for contacting us and your interest in our products.

I can confirm that the Cytosolic Phospholipase A2 Assay Kit (ab133090), does contain ethanol. There are 2 vials of Arachidonoyl Thio-PC (Substrate). Each vial contains 10 ml of ethanol. There is therefore a total of 20 mL of ethanol in the kit.

I hope this information has been of help. Please feel free to contact me with future technical questions.

Answer

Thank you for your inquiry.

I am sorry to confirm that we do not offer a kit for the measurement of the activity specifically of Lp-PLA2 (phospholipase A2, group VII (platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase, plasma) = Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 = PLA2G7).

Cytosolic Phospholipase A2 Assay Kit (ab133090) can be used to determine the activity of cytosolic Phospholipase A2 (cPLA2, PLA2G4 = Phospholipase A2, group IVA (cytosolic, calcium-dependent)) in purified preparations, cell cultures, or tissue homogenates.
Use of this assay with preparations containing more than one type of PLA2 will result in the measurement of total PLA2 activity rather than cPLA2 alone.

Maybe this kit would be suitable for you?
