cADDis: Live Cell cAMP Assay Kit
A robust and versatile cAMP assay kit:
cADDis is a genetically-encoded fluorescent cAMP assay that detects changes in cAMP in real time.
- Screen Gs or Gi-coupled GPCRs in living cells
- Viral vector delivery to practically any cell type
- Target to microdomains or specific cells in mixed cultures
cADDis cAMP assay performance:
Off the shelf kits include the cAMP sensor in BacMam, a BSL-1 viral vector for efficiently deliver to most cell types. Purified BacMam, AAV, Lenti vectors by request.
- Easily detectable on plate readers or imaging systems.
- Controllable expression in BacMam vector.
- High signal to noise ratio
Provided online is a simple cAMP assay protocol, with no need for co-factors, cell lysis, or complex liquid handling.
- Text and video protocol online
- No lysis or complex liquid handling
- Single channel, non-FRET signal
