Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Enzymatic Screening Assay
Description:  The enzymatic test is a test in two steps.In a first step, it consists in placing in contact the compound according to the invention, the dialysed MetAP2 protein and the substrate (Met-Pro-Arg-pNa peptide synthesized by Neosystem), the N-terminal methionine of which can be cleaved with MetAP2, and which bears at the C-terminal end a para-nitroaniline (pNa) chromophore, which can itself be released by another peptidase only when the N-terminal methionine has been cleaved beforehand.Consequently, the second step consists in reacting the peptides cleaved in the preceding step with a second peptidase in order to release the chromophore. The peptidase used in this second step is cathepsin, which comes from the TagZyme DAPase kit (Quiagen, 34366).The MetAP2 activity is proportional to the amount of para-nitroaniline released, which is measured by absorbance at 405 nm.
