AnaSpec Inc. has released the SensoLyte 570 Generic MMP assay kit, which offers a high emission wavelength for matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) detection, resulting in minimal interference from the autofluorescence of cell components and test compounds. The kit uses a Förster resonance energy transfer peptide substrate labeled with 5-Tamra (fluorophore) and QXL 570 (quencher). Upon cleavage of the peptide by the proteins, the fluorescence of the 5-Tamra is recovered and can be continuously monitored at excitation and emission of 540 and 575 nm, respectively.
