PerkinElmer's LANCE® Ultra cAMP assay offers unmatched sensitivity and S/B using a simple TR-FRET protocol. Ideal for any Gs- or Gi-coupled GPCR assay, this Ultra-sensitive cAMP assay is supreme when working with low cell numbers, endogenous receptors, or difficult Gi-coupled receptors.
The LANCE Ultra cAMP assay is a homogeneous time-resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer (TR-FRET) immunoassay designed to measure cAMP produced upon modulation of adenylyl cyclase activity by G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs).
The assay is based on the competition between the europium (Eu) chelate-labeled cAMP tracer and cellular cAMP for binding sites on cAMP-specific monoclonal antibodies labeled with the ULight™ dye. When antibodies are bound to the Eu-labeled cAMP tracer, light pulse at 320 or 340 nm excites the Eu chelate molecule of the tracer. The energy emitted by the excited Eu chelate is transferred by FRET to ULight molecules on the antibodies, which in turn emit light at 665 nm.

Cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases (PDEs) catalyze the hydrolysis of 3',5'-cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) and cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) to their corresponding 5’-nucleotide monophosphates, AMP and GMP.
The LANCE® Ultra cAMP kit is intended for the quantitative determination of 3’,5’-cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) in cell lysate and cellular membrane samples.
Over these last few decades there has been a growing trend in drug discovery to use cellular systems and functional assays, in addition to biochemical assays, for the characterization of new potential therapeutics. The ability to study the interaction between a candidate drug and its target within the context of a whole, intact cell allows for more physiologically relevant data to be obtained. However, such assays are more complex than traditional biochemical assays as such facts as membrane permeability, cellular metabolism, cell variability, additional binding partners, and signal transduction must be considered.
To help you navigate the complexities in designing cell-based assays, we have gathered insights collected over the years and compiled them to provide you with elements to consider when setting up your cell-based assays. After all, any assay, biochemical or cell-based, is only as good as its design.
