Easy to Use – No Wash Assay. Detection of Sarcosine in cells, serum, tissue extracts.
Sarcosine is natural amino acid that is an important intermediate in the metabolism of choline. Sarcosine is an important component of proteins and plays a significant role in metabolic processes of living cells as a source of serine, creatine, purines and glutathione etc. Sarcosine is present in food sources like legumes, eggs, ham, turkey etc. It is used in a variety of industrial applications such as manufacturing of tooth paste and biodegradable surfactants. Sarcosine was recently reported to activate prostate cancer cells and as a possible marker for prostate cancer progression to metastasis(1). It is also used in adjunctive treatment for Schizophrenia (2) and depression (3). ICT’s Fluoro Sarcosine assay provides a reliable, sensitive fluorimetric method for the quantification of sarcosine in biological samples. The Fluoro Sarcosine detection kit utilizes a non-fluorescent detection reagent, which is reduced via an enzyme-coupled reaction in the presence of sarcosine. A sarcosine standard curve is generated to quantify sarcosine in the samples.
