CAT Enzyme Assay System

The CAT Enzyme Assay System offers two alternative methods for monitoring CAT enzyme activity in transfected cells: liquid scintillation counting (LSC) and thin layer chromatography (TLC). Either the LSC or TLC assays can be performed using the same cell extract. The TLC-based assay is less sensitive and more time-consuming to perform than the LSC assay but is useful as a visual confirmation of assay results. The resolved TLC reaction products are detected by autoradiography or phosphorimaging analysis.

Chloramphenicol Acetyltransferase (CAT), encoded by a bacterial drug-resistance gene, catalyzes the transfe...
