  • 製品の概要

    Amylase Assay kit (Colorimetric) (ab102523) detects activity of a-amylase through a two-step reaction. a-Amylase will cleave the substrate ethylidene-pNP-G7 to produce smaller fragments that are eventually modified by a-glucosidase, causing the release of a chromophore that can then be measured at OD = 405 nm. The assay can detect a-amylase content as low as 0.2 mU.

  • 特記事項

    Amylases are enzymes that break starch down to sugar molecules. a-amylase is the major form of amylase found in humans and other mammals as well as an enzyme present in seeds, or in fungi (baker's yeast for instance). a-amylase is a calcium metalloenzyme, completely unable to function in the absence of calcium. In human physiology, both the salivary and pancreatic amylases are major digestive enzymes. Increased enzyme levels in humans are associated with salivary trauma; mumps due to inflammation of the salivary glands, pancreatitis and renal failure. A simple, direct and automation-ready procedure for measuring a-amylase activity is, therefore, very desirable.

These 2 kit buffers have different components and pH. They cannot be used interchangeably and it is not recommended to perform the extraction with PBS.


The kit buffers would be ideal to extract your tissue. You can use the amylase assay buffer and the trypsin assay buffer.

Thanks.


We are not aware of any lipase interference in this assay.
The reaction principle is mentioned on our datasheet for this product. The complete organic reaction is proprietary information. The same goes for the positive contro...

Thank you for your telephone enquiry this morning.

I can confirm that this kit has not been specifically tested on rat samples, and so regrettably there is no data to provide. However, theoretically it should work in rat and so we can guaran...

Unfortunately, at this time our testing discount program only applies to primary antibodies, proteins, and ELISA kits. I am sorry I could not be more helpful, please let me know if you need any further assistance.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

I have contacted the lab about using frozen samples with ab102523. If the samples were frozen appropriately (flash frozen followed by storing at -80C) so as to maintain the enzyme activity, it should be compati...
