Description

This kit utilizes the sensitive substrate GlucGreen™ to monitor beta-glucosidase activity in the lysosomes of live cells.

Lysosomal beta-glucosidase enzyme is currently indicated to be involved in diseases such as Gaucher and Parkinson’s diseases. MarkerGene™ LysoLive™ Lysosomal beta-Glucosidase Assay Kit utilizes a substrate which only becomes fluorescent upon cleavage by the enzyme meaning lysosomes with low beta-Glucosidase (GBA) activity will exhibit reduced staining in a manner proportional to the enzyme activity levels in the cell.
