Vivid™ Cyan Fluorescent Standard

Vivid® Fluorescent Standards represent the products formed during oxidation of Vivid® Substrates by cytochrome P450 enzymes. These standards enable quantification of enzyme activity when used as part of the Vivid® CYP450 Screening Kits. Vivid® Fluorescent Standards are included in the Vivid® Screening Kits, but may also be purchased separately. They are supplied as a dried film.

More About Vivid® CYP450 Screening Kits
Vivid® CYP450 Screening Kits are high-throughput fluorescence-based assays for detection of enzyme-drug interactions and CYP450 inhibition. Vivid® CYP450 Screening Kits include Vivid® Substrate, Vivid® Fluorescent Standard, reaction buffer, Vivid® Regeneration System, NADP+, and CYP450 BACULOSOMES® Plus Reagent. Vivid® Fluorogenic Substrates are blocked dyes that yield minimal fluorescence signal until cleaved or hydroxylated. Oxidation at either of two potential sites releases the highly fluorescent product. CYP450 BACULOSOMES® Plus Reagents are microsomes prepared from insect cells expressing a human CYP450 isozyme and human cytochrome P450 reductase. CYP450 BACULOSOMES® Plus Reagents offer a distinct advantage over human liver microsomes in that only one CYP450 isozyme is expressed, thereby preventing metabolism by other CYP450s.
