Cyclic Dinucleotides (CDNs) - Ubiquitous Cellular Messengers

cGAS-cGAMPInnate immunity is a key pathway activated in response to bacterial and viral infections. The invasion of foreign nucleic acids results in the production of interferons and cytokines that comprise the host defense. More recently, roles for innate immunity in tumorigenesis, autoimmune disease, and senescence also have been elucidated. In these diseases, it is ‘self’ nucleic acids, RNA and DNA, which escape into the cytosol and trigger immune responses. Cyclic GMP-AMP synthase (cGAS) and stimulator of interferon genes (STING) are the key sensors of nucleic acids in the immunity pathway.

Dysregulation of the cyclic GMP-AMP (cGAMP) synthase (cGAS) pathway leads to chronic inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and even tumorigenesis; therefore, cGAS modulators are of particular interest in searching for novel ways to treat these diseases. Learn more about Cayman's novel cGAS Inhibitor Screening Assay Kit that directly measures the product of the cGAS reaction, cGAMP. 

Cayman Chemical has also developed immunoassays for specific detection of 2’3’-cGAMP, cyclic di-GMP, and cyclic di-AMP. These immunoassays enable sensitive, accurate quantification of CDN levels in mammalian and bacterial cell lysates using a colorimetric 96-well microtiter plate format.

Leukotriene ELISA Kits

LTB4 Elisa Standard curveLipid mediators, which denote bioactive mediators derived from lipids, play roles in immune regulation, self-defense, and the maintenance of homeostasis in living systems. They include prostaglandins (PGs) and leukotrienes (LTs), lysophospholipids (including sphingosine 1-phosphate), and endocannabinoids. Leukotrienes, which are derived from arachidonic acid (AA) through two steps catalyzed by 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO), are inflammatory mediators that function in normal host defense and play roles in inflammatory diseases. They exert their biological effects by binding to G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Different LT receptor subtypes exhibit unique functions and expression patterns. LT receptors BLT1 and BLT2 are activated by leukotriene B4 (LTB4), whereas CysLT1 and CysLT2 receptors are activated by cysteinyl LTs (CysLTs). LTs are involved in various inflammatory diseases, including asthma, allergic rhinitis (AR), atopic dermatitis (AD), allergic conjunctivitis, rheumatoid arthritis, anaphylaxis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), obliterative bronchiolitis after lung transplantation, and interstitial lung diseases.

Cayman Chemical is a pioneer in Leukotriene Research and offers a broad panel of high-quality leukotriene ELISA Kits.
