Abstract

We have developed a new methodology for highly sensitive alkaline phosphatase assay using molecular beacon probes. No incubation step is needed to obtain a limit of detection for ALP of 2 x 10(-16) M. Furthermore, ALP inhibition by the inhibitor okadaic acid is shown, demonstrating the potential for high-throughput screening for inhibitors. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
