Product Overview:
Platelet-activating factor (PAF) is a biologically active phospholipid synthesized by a variety of cells upon stimulation. PAF is converted to the biologically inactive lyso-PAF by the enzyme PAF acetylhydrolase (PAF-AH). Plasma PAF-AH is highly selective for phospholipids with very short acyl groups at the sn-2 position and is associated with lipoproteins.{2626} The Cayman Chemical PAF acetylhydrolase assay kit provides an accurate and convenient method for measurement of PAF-AH activity. The assay uses 2-thio PAF which serves as a substrate for PAF-AH.{3787} Upon hydrolysis of the acetyl thioester bond at the sn-2 position by PAF-AH, free thiols are detected using 5,5'-dithio-bis(2-nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB; Ellman’s reagent). The dynamic range of the assay is only limited by the accuracy of the absorbance measurement. Most plate readers are linear to an absorbance of 1.2. The detection range of the assay is from 0.02 to 0.2 µmol/min/ml of PAF-AH activity which is equivalent to an absorbance increase of 0.01 to 0.1 per minute. Each kit contains assay buffer, DTNB, 2-thio PAF (substrate), human PAF-AH standard, a 96 well plate, and complete instructions.

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.
