Cathepsin G Activity Assay

Assay Genie’s Cathepsin G Activity Assay provides a quick and easy method for monitoring Cathepsin G. In the assay Cathepsin G cleaves the substrate to release the dye group pNA (4-Nitroaniline), which can be detect at 405 nm. In presence of the Cathepsin G specific inhibitor, the cleavage will be stopped.

Cathepsin G Background

Cathepsin G is an enzymatic protein belonging to the peptidase or protease families. The protein is found in azurophil granules of neutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes. The encoded protease has a specificity similar to that of chymotrypsin C, and may participate in the killing and digestion of engulfed pathogens, and in connective tissue remodeling at sites of inflammation.
