Read Publication using 6085-ST in the following applications:
Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Plus by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
Prepare 1X Assay Buffer by diluting 10X stock 10 fold with deionized water.
Dilute 1 mM Phosphate Standard by adding 40 µL of the 1 mM Phosphate Standard to 360 µL of 1X Assay Buffer for a 100 µM stock. This is the first point of the standard curve.
Continue standard curve by performing six one-half serial dilutions of the 100 µM Phosphate stock in 1X Assay Buffer. The standard curve has a range of 0.078 to 5 nmol per well.
Load 50 µL of each dilution of the standard curve into a plate. Include a curve blank containing 50 μL of 1X Assay Buffer.
Prepare a reaction mixture containing 0.4 mM PAPS and 4 mg/mL Heparin Sulfate in 1X Assay Buffer.
Dilute Coupling Phosphatase 3 (supplied in kit) to 50 µg/mL in 1X Assay Buffer.
Dilute rhHS3ST4 to 20 µg/mL in 1X Assay Buffer.
Load 15 µL of the 20 µg/mL rhHS3ST4 into empty wells of the same plate as the curve. Include a Negative Control containing 15 µL of 1X Assay Buffer and an Enzyme Only Control containing 15 µL of the 20 µg/mL rhHS3ST4.
Add 10 µL of 50 µg/mL Coupling Phosphatase 3 to wells containing enzyme and Negative Control, excluding the standard curve and Enzyme Only Control.
Add 25 µL of reaction mixture to enzyme and Negative Control, excluding the standard curve and Enzyme Only Control.
Add 35 µL of 1X Assay Buffer to Enzyme Only Controls. Note: All wells now have a volume of 50 µL.
Seal plate and incubate at 37 °C for 30 minutes.
Add 30 µL of the Malachite Green Reagent A to all wells.
Add 100 µL of deionized water to all wells. Mix briefly.
Add 30 µL of the Malachite Green Reagent B to all wells. Mix and incubate for 20 minutes at room temperature.
Read plate at 620 nm (absorbance) in endpoint mode.
Calculate specific activity:
Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =
Phosphate released* (nmol) x (1000 pmol/nmol)
Incubation time (min) x amount of enzyme (µg)
*Derived from the phosphate standard curve using linear or 4-parameter fitting and adjusted for Negative Control and Enzyme Only Control.
rhHS3ST4: 0.3 µg
Coupling Phosphatase 3: 0.5 µg

Alternate Names for Recombinant Human HS3ST4 Protein, CF
Heparan sulfate is a highly sulfated polysaccharide that can be found on the cell surface and within the extracellular matrix. It is typically covalently attached to the protein core of proteoglycans, such as syndecans and glypicans. Heparin, on the other hand, can be considered as a highly sulfated version of heparan sulfate that is predominantly found in mast cells. Both heparin and heparan sulfate contain disaccharide repeats of uronic acid and N‑acetylglucosamine and are modified by the same sulfotransferases (1, 2). The uronic acid residues can be sulfated at the 2-O position by heparan sulfate 2‑O sulfotransferase (HS2ST). The N‑acetylglucosamine residues can be sulfated at the N, 3-O, and 6-O positions by N‑deacetylase/N‑sulfotransferases (NDSTs), heparan sulfate 3‑O sulfotransferases (HS3STs) and heparan sulfate 6-O sulfotransferases (HS6STs) respectively. There are seven HS3STs in the human genome (3, 4). HS3ST4 and HS3ST2 are brain specific and may participate in HS-dependent neurobiologic events (5). HS3ST4 can generate tetrasulfated heparan sulfate disaccharide, the most highly sulfated sugar found in biological samples (6, 7), and may have a role in assisting HSV-1 entry and spread (8). HS3ST4 is a Golgi resident type II membrane protein and has the longest proline rich stem region among all HS3STs (3, 5). The activity of the recombinant human CHST1 is measured using a PAP-specific phosphatase-coupled sulfotransferase assay (9).
