This Kit provides sufficient reagents for 400 quantitative measurements of SEAP protein in 96-well microtiter format.
Multiple samples can be analyzed in a low-volume, high through-put experiement.
Full analysis complete in under 1 hr.
SEAP is secreted into the media so no cell lysis is required for the detection of its enzymatic activity.
A secreted indicator function permits multiple kinetics experiments using only one culture through sequential sampling of the medium, and also allows the cells to be used for other purposes, such as RNA extraction, Western blot analysis, and other assays.
Heating samples at 65C for 10-30 mins can destroy endogenous alkaline phosphatase but not SEAP.
SEAP is stable in serum, allowing it to be used as a reporter assay in vivo. SEAP catalyzes the hydrolysis of pNitrophenyl phosphate (PNPP) producing a yellow product that can be read in a spectrophotometer or ELISA reader at 405 nm.
Assay Kit (Colorimetric)
Use of duplicate wells for the SEAP standard is recommended to obtain accurate results. This kit can be used with supernatant from transfected cells as described or serum as determined by your experimental protocol.

Alternate Names for Secreted Alkaline Phosphatase Reporter Assay Kit (Colorimetric)
Placental alkaline phosphatase (PLAP) is one of the most stable isoenzymes, only existing in the placenta of higher primates. These characteristics make placental alkaline phosphatase suitable to use as a reporter gene for the analysis of promoter activity and gene expression in cell culture and animal serum. The natural form of PLAP is membrane anchored. The recombinant form of placental alkaline phosphatase (secreted alkaline phosphatase, SEAP) is used for reporter gene function. SEAP is designed by inserting a translational terminator after amino acid 489 (Berger, et al., Gene 66 (1): 10 (1988). This mutation converts the membrane-bound PLAP protein into the secreted protein SEAP.
