Cayman Chemical Renin Inhibitor Screening Assay Kit is offered in a 96-well format for evaluating human renin inhibitors. The assay utilizes a renin-based synthetic peptide substrate which incorporates the fluorophore EDANS at one end and an EDAN-quenching molecule (Dabcyl) at the other end. After cleavage by renin, the peptide-EDANS product is released yielding bright fluorescence which can be easily analyzed using excitation wavelengths of 335-345 nm and emission wavelengths of 485-510 nm. The assay kit includes recombinant human renin (sufficient for 100 reactions), substrate, buffers, and complete instructions.
