Acetate Colorimetric Assay Kit

Acetate is an important component for biosynthesis. In living organisms, acetylation/deacetylation of proteins is critical for post-translational regulation of their functions. When bound to CoA, Acetyl-CoA is central to metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. It is also involved in the synthesis of biogenic compounds such as neurotransmitter acetylcholine. In Assay Genie's Acetate Assay Kit, Acetate is converted to an intermediate in the presence of Acetate Enzyme Mix & Acetate Substrate Mix. The intermediate reduces a colorless probe to a colored product with strong absorbance at 450 nm. The Acetate Colorimetric Assay Kit is rapid, simple & sensitive. It can detect less than 20 µM Acetate in various samples.
