Product Overview:
Cyclooxygenase (COX, also called Prostaglandin H Synthase or PGHS) enzymes contain both cyclooxygenase and peroxidase activities. COX catalyzes the first step in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins (PGs), thromboxanes, and prostacyclins; the conversion of arachidonic acid to PGH2. It is now well established that there are two distinct isoforms of COX. Cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) is constitutively expressed in variety of cell types and is involved in normal cellular homeostasis. A variety of mitogenic stimuli such as phorbol esters, lipopolysaccharides, and cytokines lead to the induced expression of a second isoform of COX, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2). COX-2 is responsible for the biosynthesis of PGs under acute inflammatory conditions.{4} This inducible COX-2 is believed to be the target enzyme for the anti-inflammatory activity of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The COX (ovine/human) Inhibitor Screening Assay directly measures PGF2α produced by SnCl2 reduction of COX-derived PGH2. The prostanoid product is quantified via enzyme immunosorbent assay (ELISA) using a broadly specific antibody that binds to all the major prostaglandin compounds. Thus, the Cayman COX assay is more accurate and reliable than an assay based on peroxidase inhibition. The Cayman COX Inhibitor Screening Assay includes both ovine COX-1 and human recombinant COX-2 enzymes in order to screen isozyme-specific inhibitors. This assay is an excellent tool which can be used for general inhibitor screening, or to eliminate false positive leads generated by less specific methods.

Cayman Chemical's mission is to help make research possible by supplying scientists worldwide with the basic research tools necessary for advancing human and animal health. Our utmost commitment to healthcare researchers is to offer the highest quality products with an affordable pricing policy.

Our scientists are experts in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of biochemicals ranging from small drug-like heterocycles to complex biolipids, fatty acids, and many others. We are also highly skilled in all aspects of assay and antibody development, protein expression, crystallization, and structure determination.

Over the past thirty years, Cayman developed a deep knowledge base in lipid biochemistry, including research involving the arachidonic acid cascade, inositol phosphates, and cannabinoids. This knowledge enabled the production of reagents of exceptional quality for cancer, oxidative injury, epigenetics, neuroscience, inflammation, metabolism, and many additional lines of research.

Our organic and analytical chemists specialize in the rapid development of manufacturing processes and analytical methods to carry out clinical and commercial GMP-API production. Pre-clinical drug discovery efforts are currently underway in the areas of bone restoration and repair, muscular dystrophy, oncology, and inflammation. A separate group of Ph.D.-level scientists are dedicated to offering Hit-to-Lead Discovery and Profiling Services for epigenetic targets. Our knowledgeable chemists can be contracted to perform complete sample analysis for analytes measured by the majority of our assays. We also offer a wide range of analytical services using LC-MS/MS, HPLC, GC, and many other techniques.
