Enzyme Substrate Sets

The most efficient way to study enzyme activity and enzyme substrate specificity (e.g. for phosphatase substrates, kinase substrates or protease substrates) is by incubating the enzyme of interest with multiple enzyme substrates or enzyme ligands (peptide sets) in parallel.

Properties of Enzyme Substrate Sets:

  • Available as Kinase Substrates, Phosphatase Substrates and Protease Substrates
  • Ready-to-screen peptide sets
  • Comprised of large numbers of enzyme substrate peptides
  • Substrates derived from human phosphorylation sites (phosphatase substrate and kinase subtrates) or cleavage sites (protease substrates)
  • Carefully selected substrate peptides from scientific databases or publications
  • Enzyme Substrate Sets come in 96- or 384-well microtiter plates, each well containing one specific enzyme substrate
  • Read-out is optimized for each enzyme class.
  • Kinase Substrates are incubated with radioactive (hot) ATP and detected by radioautography
  • Phosphatase substrate set uses phosphate binding dyes for read-out
  • Protease substrates are internally quenched (Dabcyl/EDANS) for fluorescence read-out

Applications for Enzyme Substrate Sets

  • Identification of kinase substrates, phosphatase substrates or protease substrates
  • Determination of enzyme consensus sequences
  • Identification of potential in vivo substrates and enzyme inhibitors
  • Elucidation of signal transduction pathways
  • Reliable identification of contaminating enzymes

Benefits of Enzyme Substrate Sets

  • Screen hundreds of potential enzyme substrates simultaneously at low cost
  • Save time for HTS-Assay development
  • Learn more about the biology of your enzyme
  • Determine kinetic constants

Testimonials for Enzyme Substrate Sets

“We were very pleased with how easy it was to do the experiment (with Kinase Substrate Sets) using the equipment we had on hand - for example, we just used our 8-channel micropipette to add the enzyme/ATP mix.“
Betty A. Eipper, Ph.D, University of Connecticut, Farmington, CT, USA

 “For several years, my group at the Tumor Biology Center has been using JPT’s Protease Profiling Tools for analyzing the substrate specificity of tumor-associated proteases as well as for identifying cancer specific protease patterns.”
Dr. Felix Kratz (Clinic for Tumor Biology, Freiburg, Germany)

"Our research relies heavily on developing robust high-throughput screens with fluorescent peptides.  We have found that JPT’s are the best on the market because the signal-to-noise ratio is very high, providing the sensitivity we need for the screens. Their peptides always perform well. In addition, the knowledge, wonderful customer support, and fast turnaround time provided by JPT have been invaluable in helping us develop the best peptides for our assays."
Professor Carla Koehler, PhD (UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USA)
