DPPIV is a serine protease that cleaves N-terminal dipeptides from polypeptides with L-proline or L-alanine at the penultimate position. The DPPIV-Glo Assay provides a proluminescent DPPIV substrate, Gly-Pro-aminoluciferin, in a buffer system optimized for DPPIV and luciferase activities. The addition of a single DPPIV-Glo Reagent in an “add-mix-measure” format results in DPPIV cleavage of the substrate and generation of a “glow-type” luminescent signal produced by the luciferase reaction. In this homogeneous, coupled-enzyme format, the signal is proportional to the amount of DPPIV activity present. The assay is designed for use with purified enzyme preparations.

  • Homogeneous protocol makes the assay highly amenable to automation
  • More sensitive than fluorescent-based DPPIV assays; the luminescent assay avoids inherent fluorescent background signals and thus provides good signal-to-background readings
  • Assay is linear over more than three logs of DPPIV concentration and can detect less than 1pg/mL enzyme
  • Maximum signal (and maximum sensitivity) of the assay is reached in as little as 30 minutes after reagent addition and is not dependent on accumulation of cleaved product
  • Stable signal allows plates to be read over an extended period of time
