This is a colorimetric competitive immunoassay kit for the quantitative determination of intracellular cAMP in cells or tissues lysed in 0.1 M HCl, which is used to stop endogenous phosphodiesterase activity and stabilize the released cyclic AMP. The 0.1M HCl treated samples are then analyzed directly in a microtiter plate without extraction, drying and reconstitution. Sensitivity is increased 10-fold by acetylation (reagents included). Absorbance is read at 405 nm. The large signal-to-background ratio offers superior sensitivity compared to competitors. This kit lets you easily assess adenylyl cyclase activation by GPCRs.

Scientific Background:Cyclic AMP (cAMP) is one of the most important “second messengers” involved as a modulator of physiological processes. A number of hormones are known to activate cAMP through the action of the enzyme Adenylate cyclase which converts ATP to cAMP. cAMP has been shown to be involved in the cardiovascular and nervous systems, immune mechanisms, cell growth and differentiation, and general metabolism.
