CYP450 Protein Assay - Human Induction Kit

For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Protein expression changes of individual cytochrome P450 (CYP450) isoforms can be directly measured using the CYP450 Protein Assay – Human Induction Kits and an LC/mass spectrometry workflow for high specificity, sensitivity, and accuracy. These kits have been developed to employ multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) analysis to quantify seven CYP450 isoforms that are key proteins for induction studies: 1A2, 2B6, 2C9, 2C19, 2E1, 3A4 and 3A5.  Kits with varying numbers of isoforms are available: 1) the four-isoform kit (1A2, 2B6, 3A4 and 3A5), and 2) the seven-isoform kit (1A2, 2B6, 2C9, 2C19, 2E1, 3A4 and 3A5).

  • Directly measure CYP450 induction at the protein level without expensive antibodies
  • Measure individual CYP450 isoforms with high specificity, sensitivity, and accuracy
  • Easy-to-use kits and methodology employ a common MRM workflow
  • Results are equivalent to traditional mRNA or activity assays

Overview

Everything you need to perform protein quantitation: The starter kit contains peptide standards, sample preparation reagents and buffers, trypsin, a column, data acquisition methods, and processing methods and templates for performing protein quantitation using multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) analysis on an SCIEX Triple Quad or QTRAP System. The peptide standards for each protein are synthesized using isotopically-enriched amino acids (lysine and arginine) to provide the highest quantitative robustness. The LC/MS/MS method allows for a direct measurement of CYP450 protein levels without the use of antibodies, providing savings in both time and expense (Figure 1).

Advanced data analysis software

The data generated for CYP450 analysis is processed with MultiQuant Software. The software automatically integrates the MRM data and computes area ratios to the added peptide internal standards for all samples. Processed area ratio results are imported into a Microsoft Excel template for computation of protein level data. Results are plotted in a simple bar chart to compare sample expression levels of each CYP450 isoform to negative control expression levels.

Assay type comparison

Correlation between enzymatic activity, mRNA expression, and protein expression (as measured by LC/MS/MS) is excellent (Figure 2). Both baseline and inducible levels of the CYP450 isoforms are easily detected by the LC-MRM protein quantitation method.

Part Number

Kit Name/Description

4445250 Trypsin TPCK (500 μg)
A modified (TPCK treated) serine protease that specifically hydrolyzes peptide bonds at the carboxyl side of lysine and arginine residues.
