GTPase-Glo™ Assay

Instructions for Use of Product(s)
V7681, V7682

Literature # TM452

The GTPase-Glo™ Assay assesses the activities of GTPases, GAPs and GEFs, which are components of the GTPase cycle, by detecting the amount of GTP remaining after GTP hydrolysis in a GTPase reaction. The remaining GTP is converted to ATP using the GTPase-Glo™ Reagent, and the ATP is then detected using a proprietary thermostable luciferase and luciferin substrate to produce bioluminescence. With the GTPase-Glo™ Assay, you can measure intrinsic GTPase activity, GAP-stimulated GTPase activity, GAP activity and GEF activity. GTPase, GAP and GEF activity is inversely correlated to the amount of light produced. A highly active GTPase hydrolyzes more GTP, reducing the amount of ATP produced from GTP and reducing light output. A less active GTPase hydrolyzes less GTP, leaving a larger amount of GTP to be converted to ATP and producing more light.
