Six Luminescent Substrates for Cytochrome P450 Assays

Promega Corporation
Publication Date: 2009


Luminogenic CYP assays use prosubstrates for the light-generating reaction of firefly luciferase. CYPs convert the prosubstrates to an active luciferin, which produces light in a second reaction with luciferase. The amount of light generated is proportional to the amount of luciferin produced by the CYP and, therefore, to CYP enzyme activity.
