Description

Thermo Scientific Serine Hydrolase Probes are ActivX™ Fluorophosphonate (FP) and other tagged phosphonate probes to purify or assay serine hydrolase active sites using fluorescence, biotin-affinity, or mass spectrometry.

Features of the ActivX TAMRA-FP Serine Hydrolase Probe:

Specific—labels the reactive site of active serine hydrolases
Compatible—tags available for capture, detection and Staudinger conjugation
Flexible—use for in vitro or intracellular enzyme labeling

These ActivX™ FP Probes feature a reactive fluorophosphonate group that specifically and covalently labels the active-site serine of enzymatically active serine hydrolases. These probes are available with a desthiobiotin (biotin analog) tag for selective enrichment, TAMRA fluorophore for detection or a reactive- azido group (Staudinger reagents) that facilitates multiplex labeling when used with phosphine- or alkyne-derivatized tags. These probes can be used to assess activity or screen small molecule inhibitors against enzymes derived from cell lysates, subcellular fractions, tissues and recombinant proteins.

Applications:
• Determine serine hydrolase enzyme activity in cells and lysates
• Mapping the active-site serine of functionally diverse serine hydrolase family members (e.g. proteases, lipases, esterases)
• Screen for small molecule binding affinities and active-site inhibition
• Profile serine hydrolases using fluorescent, Western blot or mass spectrometry workflows

ActivX active-site probes are especially advantageous for determining active enzyme levels compared to other protein expression profiling techniques that only measure abundance. Because many of the proteolytic enzymes in the serine hydrolase family are expressed as inactive proenzymes (zymogens), the ActivX FP probes selective enrichment only those enzymes that are functionally active and biologically relevant at the time of labeling. This feature also makes it possible to perform selective screening of inhibitors or other conditions that alter enzyme activity.

Active serine hydrolases labeled with ActivX FP Probes can be detected and quantified by Western blot, fluorescent gel imaging or mass spectrometry by using a compatible tag. The TAMRA-FP probe can be used to label and detect active serine hydrolases in samples by fluorescent gel imaging, capillary electrophoresis or mass spectrometry. An anti-TAMRA antibody is also available for immuno-enrichment of TAMRA-FP probe-labeled proteins. The Azido-FP probe is used in combination with a phosphine- or alkyne-derivatized tag for either detection or enrichment. Desthiobiotin-FP probes can be used for streptavidin-based enrichment and detection of active serine hydrolase proteins in Western blotting or mass spectrometry.

The serine hydrolase superfamily is one of the largest, most diverse enzyme families in eukaryotic proteomes. Serine hydrolases are generally grouped into two large families: serine proteases (e.g., trypsin, elastase and thrombin) and metabolic serine hydrolases. Metabolic serine hydrolases are divided into multiple enzyme subclasses (e.g., esterases, lipases, amidases and peptidases) based on structure, catalytic mechanism and substrate preference.
