Myeloperoxidase (MPO: EC is a peroxidase abundantly expressed in neutrophil granulocytes. It catalyzes the hydrogen peroxide dependent oxidation of halide ions to generate hypochlorite (HClO), the reaction by which MPO exhibits cytotoxic activity against tumor cells and microorganisms. MPO also oxidizes various substances such as phenol and anilines. MPO undergoes chlorination or peroxidation reaction depending upon the relative concentrations of chloride and the reducing substrates. Recent studies suggest that increased levels of MPO are associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease and myocardial infarction, thus development of novel and specific inhibitors of MPO is critical for therapeutic purposes. BioVision’s MPO Inhibitor Screening Kit provides screening assays for both MPO chlorination and peroxidation activities. In the chlorination assay (specific for MPO), MPO converts hydrogen peroxide and sodium chloride to sodium hypochlorite, which reacts with Chlorination substrate to give an intensely fluorescent product (Ex/Em = 480/520 nm). In the Peroxidation Assay, MPO oxidizes peroxidation substrate to generate fluorescence (Ex/Em = 535/587 nm). The fluorescence generated is directly proportional to any peroxidase activity present. In the presence of MPO inhibitor, reactions are impeded, thus decreasing the rate and/or extent of generation of MPO-dependent fluorescence. This kit provides a sensitive, quick, and easy method for screening potential inhibitors of MPO, and identifying whether one or both activities are inhibited. MPO Inhibitor Control is included to compare the efficacy of test inhibitors. The assay is high-throughput adaptable and can be performed in less than 20 min.

Can we use frozen samples with this assay?
We would recommend using fresh samples. However, frozen samples can be used too provided they have not undergone multiple freeze thaw cycles.
Can the kit work on bacteria or yeast cells?
The kit has been standardized for mammalian cells only.
What is the exact volume of sample required for this assay?
There is no specific volume we can recommend for the amount any sample to be used since it is completely sample concentration and quality based. You have to do a pilot expt with multiple sample volumes to determine the optimal volume which gives a reading within the linear range of the standard curve. Please refer to the citations for this product to see what other clients have used with similar sample types.
Do you have trial sizes of this kit?
Unfortunately, we do not have trial sizes of this kit available. However, if you are based in the US or Canada, we will give you a 10% off list price introductory discount on its purchase price. If you are based out of this area please contact your regional BioVision distributor.
What is the shelf life of this kit?
BioVisions’s assay kits expire 6-12 months from the date of shipment. Some components of the kit may expire sooner as mentioned in the data sheet.
Can we purchase individual components of this kit?
Yes, you can purchase any of the kit's components without the whole kit. Please refer to the component Cat #s mentioned on the datasheet for ordering.
Can we use an alternate buffer for sample preparation (cell lysis, sample dilutions etc)?
Our assay buffers are optimized for the reactions they are designed for. They not only contain some detergents for efficient lysis of your cells/tissue, but also contain some proprietary components required for the further reactions. Therefore, we highly recommend using the buffers provided in the kit for the best results.
