Telomerase Activity Test Kit


Telomerase is an enzyme that lengthens telomeric DNA strands and compensates for their shortening during replication. Thus, telomerase can delay or prevent telomere length-induced senescence. The role of telomerase in the aging process has attracted the interest of researchers. We offer quantitative assay kits for telomerase activity for aging-related studies.

Telomerase Activity qPCR Test Kit

Telomerase Activity Test Kit-figure-1

Cat. No.: TK002
Pack Size: 100 Reactions
Methodology: Quantitative Real-Time PCR (qPCR)

The kit is designed to quantitatively compare telomerase activity between cell samples. We use proprietary qPCR protocols and designed amplification primers to quantify telomerase activity in cell or tissue samples. The cell lysis buffer is a mild lysis buffer that enables the release of telomerase in the native state. The telomere primer set recognizes and amplifies newly synthesized telomere sequences in the assay.

Storage: Cell lysates are stored at -80 °C. Nuclease-free H2O is stored at 4 °C. Other components are stored at -20 °C.

Shipping: Dry Ice

Availability: In Stock

What is the Purpose of the Telomere Length Test?

Telomerase is an enzyme that lengthens the telomere chain, and telomerase activity is a marker of cell proliferative activity. Telomerase activity is not detected in the majority of normal cells. It is generally expressed in reproductive organs and embryonic tissues. Telomerase activity assays can be used for cellular timing, tumor diagnosis and potential drug development.
