Rapid Pyruvate Detection from Diverse Samples

The Pyruvate-Glo™ Assay is a fast and sensitive method for detecting pyruvate in various biological samples, such as cultured cells, media and serum. Based on bioluminescent technology, the Pyruvate-Glo™ Assay can detect subtle changes in glycolysis and mitochondrial metabolism in just 75 minutes. Its streamlined sample preparation protocol involves acid treatment and neutralization directly in the assay wells, eliminating the need for cell collection, centrifugation and spin columns. The assay is adaptable to a 384-well format, facilitating quick analysis of many samples.

How the Pyruvate-Glo™ Assay Works

Diagram illustrating how the Pyruvate-Glo™ Assay works.

Pyruvate Oxidase catalyzes the reduction of pyruvate to acetyl phosphate, generating H2O2. In the presence of H2O2, the H2O2 Substrate is converted into luciferin. This reaction is detected by Ultra-Glo™ Recombinant Luciferase, which emits light proportionate to the amount of pyruvate in the sample.

Measure the Effect of Metabolic Inhibitors on Cellular Pyruvate Levels

The Pyruvate-Glo™ Assay can be used to monitor both intracellular and extracellular pyruvate in cell culture, including quickly assessing the metabolic effects of drug treatment.

Monitor metabolic effects of drug treatment with the  Pyruvate-Glo™ Assay. K562 cells in suspension were incubated with DMSO (negative control), 10μM GSK2837808 (lactate dehydrogenase A inhibitor), 10μM 7ACC2 (monocarboxylate transporter 1-4 [MCT1-4] inhibitor) or 10μM UK5099 (mitochondrial pyruvate carrier inhibitor) for one to two hours. Following the incubations, half the volume was analyzed using the Pyruvate-Glo™ Assay (Panel A), and half the volume was removed for viability analysis using CellTiter-Glo® Luminescent Cell Viability Assay (Panel B). As expected, pyruvate levels increased approximately twofold after a 2-hour incubation with UK5099 and 7ACC2 compared to the DMSO control. There was no decrease in viability during treatment when compared to the DMSO control. All data represent an average of three replicates.
