Development of the HTRF assay
Biotin-APP-Eu cryptate (BACE1 substrate)
Beta-secretase (BACE1) is an enzyme which cleaves amyloid precursor protein (APP) to produce the amyloid ß42 peptide, responsible for insoluble amyloid plaques in Alzheimer's disease (AD).
HTRF APP substrate labeled with both biotin and Eu3+ Cryptate, used with HTRF SA-XL665 or Sa-d2, provides a sensitive and efficient method for screening BACE1 inhibitors with the robustness of HTRF technology.
- BACE1 ACTIVITY
- BATCH-TO-BATCH REPRODUCIBILITY
- ALLOWS HOMOGENEOUS ASSAY
The HTRF BACE1 assay was used to compare the activity of soluble proBACE1 (sproBACE1) and a soluble BACE1 that was autoprocessed to remove the prodomain sequence (sautoBACe1), in the presence of selected inhibitors. 25 nM Biotin-APP substrate-Eu cryptate, 5 µM unlabeled APP peptide substrates and 6 nM enzyme were incubated for 3 h at 30 °C, pH 5.0, in the presence and absence of increasing concentrations of peptidic inhibitors.
