PathHunter® eXpress HEK 293 IκB Degradation Assay

PathHunter Degradation cells are engineered to express an Enzyme Donor (ED) tagged target protein. Activation of the pathway results in degradation of the ED-tagged protein. Addition of exogenous Enzyme Acceptor (EA), and buffer, lyses the cell and forces complementation of the ED and EA enzyme fragments. This results in the formation of a functional enzyme that hydrolyzes substrate to generate a chemiluminescent signal. These cells have been modified to prevent long term propagation and expansion using a proprietary compound that has no apparent effect on assay performance.
