Aequorin is a photo protein originating from the jellyfish Aequorea Victoria. The apo-enzyme (apoaequorin) is a 21 kD protein, which requires a hydrophobic prosthetic group, coelenterazine, to be converted to aequorin,the active form of the enzyme. This enzyme possesses 3 calcium binding sites which control its activity.
Aequorin-based Ca2+ assays represent a new paradigm in drug discovery research for cell-based assays for Ca2+-coupled GPCRs and ion channels. In the aequorin assay, cells co-expressing apoaequorin and the target receptor are first incubated with the co-factor coelenterazinein order to reconstitute the activea equorin enzyme.
PerkinElmer’s validated, ready-to-use AequoZen™or cAMPZen™ frozen, irradiated cells make it easier for you to perform functional testing of GPCRs. Just thaw and use! Reliable, convenient AequoZen cells for aequorin calcium testing or cAMPZen cells for cAMP testing let you get the testing done. So you can concentrate on results.
