Use of a fluorescence plate reader for measuring kinetic parameters with inner filter effect correction


, : Use of a fluorescence plate reader for measuring kinetic parameters with inner filter effect correction. Analytical Biochemistry 267(2): 331-335

A general method is presented here for the determination of the Km, kcat, and kcat/Km of fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) substrates using a fluorescence plate reader. A simple empirical method for correcting for the inner filter effect is shown to enable accurate and undistorted measurements of these very important kinetic parameters. Inner filter effect corrected rates of hydrolysis of a FRET peptide substrate by hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 protease at various substrate concentrations enabled measurement of a Km value of 4.4 +/- 0.3 microM and kcat/Km value of 96,500 +/- 5800 M-1 s-1. These values are very close to the HPLC-determined Km value of 4.6 +/- 0.7 microM and kcat/Km value of 92,600 +/- 14,000 M-1 s-1. We demonstrate that the inner filter effect correction of microtiter plate reader velocities enables rapid measurement of Ki and Ki' values and kinetic inhibition mechanisms for HCV NS3 protease inhibitors.

Models of hybrid zones differ in their assumptions about the relative fitnesses of hybrids and the parental species. These fitness relationships determine the form of selection across the hybrid zone and, along with gene flow, the evolutionary dyn...

Post-processing inoculation of buttermilk with 104 or 106 psychrotrophs/ml (Pseudomonas fluorescens) had no effect on organic acids or headspace volatiles during storage at 7 degrees C for up to 20 days.

We identify Kette, a key regulator of actin polymerization, as a substrate for Drosophila protein tyrosine phosphatase PTP61F, as well as for dAbl tyrosine kinase. We further show that dAbl is a direct substrate for PTP61F. Therefore, Kette phosph...

Protamine is an arginine-rich basic protein found in the sperm nuclei of many vertebrates, but its actual roles in spermatozoa remain to be elucidated. In this study, we investigated the physiological roles of protamine by examining protamine-less...
