Product nameGamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) Assay Kit (Fluorometric)
See all Transglutaminase 1 kits
Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) Assay Kit (Fluorometric) (ab241030) provides a convenient tool for sensitive detection of the GGT in a variety of samples.
The GGT in sample will recognize L-γ-Glutamyl-AMC as a specific substrate leading to proportional fluorescence development. The activity of GGT can be easily quantified fluorometrically (Ex/Em = 365/460 nm).
This assay detects GGT activity as low as 0.02 mIU in sample.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Please refer to protocols.
Components 100 tests AMC Standard 1 x 100µl GGT Assay Buffer 1 x 25ml GGT Positive Control 1 vial GGT Substrate 1 unit
RelevanceGlutamyltransferase (gGT) from human kidney is a membrane bound enzyme that transfers the gamma glutamly moiety of gamma glutamyl compounds such as glutathione to an acceptor, which may be an amino acid or a di or tripeptide or water. The principal functions of gGT may be hydrolysis and metabolism of glutathione. Various human gGT isoforms have been found. The molecular mass of gGT for normal kidney is 90kDa and gGT can be used as a renal cell marker.
