Species reactivityReacts with: Human
Protein Carbonyl Content Assay Kit (Fluorometric) (ab235631) uses Fluoroscein-5-Thiosemicarbazide (FTC), a fluorescent probe which covalently reacts with oxidized residues (i.e. Cysteine, Lysine, Arginine, Histidine and Aspartic Acid) on proteins.
Protein carbonyl content is determined by the generation of a stable fluorometric signal (Ex/Em 485/535 nm), which is compared to the protein concentration determined in a BCA Assay to quantitate nmoles of carbonyl/mg protein.
The fluorometric protein carbonyl content assay kit is simple, requires no harsh chemicals, can quantitate carbonyls in serum or plasma and produces more reliable and reproducible results than the comparable colorimetric assays. It can detect carbonyl groups in samples with protein concentrations as low as 1 mg/mL.
Other Protein Carbonyl Content assays include:
- Protein Carbonyl Content Assay (DNPH) ab126287 (most popular protein carbonyl content assay)
- Protein Carbonyl Content ELISA (DNPH) ab238536
- Protein Carbonyl Content Western Blot Assay ab178020
