Myeloperoxidase (MPO) Activity Assay Kit ab111749 provides a rapid, simple and reliable fluorometric assay to study MPO activity.
In the MPO assay protocol, MPO catalyzes the production of sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) from hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and sodium chloride (NaCl). Subsequently, NaClO reacts stoichiometrically with the free radical sensor Aminophenyl fluorescein (APF) to generate fluorescein, whose fluorescence can be detected at Ex/Em = 485/525 nm.
This MPO assay kit can be used to detect MPO activity as low as 0.5 µU per well.
MPO assay protocol summary:
- add fluoroscein standard to wells and analyze with a microplate reader
- add samples to wells
- add reaction mix
- analyze every 2-3 mins with a microplate reader in kinetic mode for at least 30 mins
This product is manufactured by BioVision, an Abcam company and was previously called K745 Myeloperoxidase (MPO) Fluorometric Activity Assay Kit. K745-100 is the same size as the 100 test size of ab111749.

FunctionPart of the host defense system of polymorphonuclear leukocytes. It is responsible for microbicidal activity against a wide range of organisms. In the stimulated PMN, MPO catalyzes the production of hypohalous acids, primarily hypochlorous acid in physiologic situations, and other toxic intermediates that greatly enhance PMN microbicidal activity.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in MPO are the cause of myeloperoxidase deficiency (MPD) [MIM:254600]. MPD is an autosomal recessive defect that results in disseminated candidiasis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peroxidase family. XPO subfamily.
