A FLUOR DE LYS® fluorescent assay system. The SIRT2 Fluorescent Activity Assay/Drug Discovery Kit is a complete assay system designed to measure the lysyl deacetylase activity of the recombinant human SIRT2 included in the kit. The kit is ideal for chemical library screening for candidate inhibitors or activators or kinetic assay of the enzyme under varying conditions. The FLUOR DE LYS® SIRT2 assay is based on the FLUOR DE LYS®Substrate and FLUOR DE LYS® Developer combination. The assay procedure has two steps. First, the FLUOR DE LYS® SIRT2 Substrate, which comprises a unique peptide based on amino acids 317-320 of p53 (Gln-Pro-Lys-Lys(Ac)), is incubated with SIRT2. Deacetylation of the substrate sensitizes the substrate so that, in the second step, treatment with the FLUOR DE LYS®Developer II produces a fluorophore.
Figure 1: Reaction Scheme of the SIRT2 Fluorescent Activity Assay. NAD+-dependent deacetylation of the substrate by recombinant human SIRT2 sensitizes it to Developer II, which then generates a fluorophore (symbol). The fluorophore is excited with 360 nm light and the emitted light (460 nm) is detected on a fluorometric plate reader. NAD+ is consumed in the reaction to produce nicotinamide (NAM) and O-acetyl-ADP-ribose.

Product Specification

Alternative Name:Sirtuin 2 fluorescent assay kit
Applications:Fluorescent detection, HTS
Activity assay, Cell-based assays
Use/Stability:Store all components except the microplates and instruction booklet at -80°C for the highest stability. The SIRT2 enzyme, Prod. No. BML-SE251, must be handled with particular care in order to retain maximum enzymatic activity. Defrost it quickly in a RT water bath or by rubbing between fingers, then immediately store on an ice bath. The remaining unused extract should be refrozen quickly, by placing at -80°C. If possible, snap freeze in liquid nitrogen or a dry ice/ethanol bath. To minimize the number of freeze/thaw cycles, aliquot into separate tubes and store at -80°C. The 5x Developer II (Prod. No. BML-KI176) can be prone to precipitation if thawed too slowly. It is best to thaw this reagent in a room temperature water bath and, once thawed, transfer immediately onto ice.

Scientific Background:Due to their roles in gene silencing, aging and oxidative stress responses, the sirtuins (NAD -dependent deacetylases related to yeast Sir2), are currently the subject of intense research interest. Like Sir2, human SIRT2 is a class I sirtuin, although not as closely related to Sir2 as human SIRT1. The three-dimensional structure of SIRT2 has been determined, and its catalytic core has the same basic two-domain architecture and central groove as other sirtuins. SIRT2 is a cytoplasmic protein, although a lesser amount of nuclear localization has also been reported and an interaction with the homeobox transcription factor HOXA10 have also been reported. A complex comprising HDAC6 and SIRT2 colocalizes with the microtubule network and both enzymes can deacetylate a-tubulin lysine-40 in purified tubulin heterodimers or microtubules. SIRT2 protein levels rise and it becomes phosphorylated during mitosis . Overexpression of SIRT2 delays exit of cells from mitosis, suggesting that it may play a role in cell cycle regulation.
