Target cGAS with the Transcreener® cGAMP cGAS Assay

The Transcreener cGAMP cGAS Assay relies on direct detection of cGAMP produced by cGAS to measure enzyme activity. The assay uses antibodies that selectively bind cGAMP in the presence of excess ATP and GTP. When the fluorescent tracer is displaced by cGAMP, a change in signal is achieved. The novel direct detection method simplifies the protocol (no coupling enzyme needed) and minimizes compound interference.

The assay can be used to:

  • Quantify Inhibitor Potency
  • Determine Inhibitor-cGAS Residence Time
  • Measure Enzymatic Activity of cGAS
  • Screen Compound Libraries for cGAS inhibitors

Why Choose Transcreener?

  • Direct detection of unlabeled cGAMP
  • Easy to use and HTS ready
  • Robust Assay with Z’ > 0.7
  • Far-red fluorescent readouts reduce compound interference
  • A non-radioactive, safe technique
  • Available in FP or TR-FRET readout depending on preference and plate reader compatibility

Example cGAS Data

24+ Hour Signal Stability for HTS

cGAS Signal Stability at 1 and 24 hours with Transcreener cGAMP FP Assay

cGAS titration at 1 hour and 24 hours demonstrates the assay's oustanding signal stability. The signal stability seen here is crucial for HTS where the screen size can require significant more time.
