>95%, by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions and visualized by silver stain
Assay Procedure
  • Assay Buffer: 50 mM MES, 100 mM NaCl, 0.05% (w/v) Brij-35, pH 6.5
  • Recombinant C. perfringens Neuraminidase (rCpNA) (Catalog # 5080-NM)
  • Substrate: 2’-(4-Methylumbelliferyl)-alpha -D-N-acetylneuraminic acid (Sigma, Catalog # M8639), 10 mM stock in DMSO
  • F16 Black Maxisorp Plate (Nunc, Catalog # 475515)
  • Fluorescent Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Gemini EM by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Dilute rCpNA to 0.04 ng/µL in Assay Buffer.
  2. Dilute Substrate to 400 µM in Assay Buffer.
  3. Load 50 µL of 0.04 ng/µL rCpNA into a plate, and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of 400 µM Substrate.
  4. Read at excitation and emission wavelengths of 365 nm and 445 nm (top read), respectively in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
  5. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (pmoles/min/µg) =

Adjusted Vmax* (RFU/min) x Conversion Factor** (pmole/RFU)
amount of enzyme (µg)

     *Adjusted for Substrate Blank

     **Derived using calibration standard 4-Methylumbelliferone (Sigma, Catalog # M1381).

Per Well:
  • rCpNA: 0.002 µg
  • Substrate: 200 µM

Alternate Names for Recombinant C. perfringens Neuraminidase Protein, CF

  • Bacterial Neuraminidase


Neuraminidase and Sialidase are the common names for N‑acetyl‑neuraminyl hydrolase (1-3). The enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of alpha 2-3 and alpha 2-6 linked N‑acetyl‑neuraminic acid residues from glycoproteins and glycolipids. It has little activity against the alpha 2-8 linked N‑acetyl‑neuraminic acid residues.
