Tong L (August 2005). "Acetyl-coenzyme A carboxylase: crucial metabolic enzyme and attractive target for drug discovery". Cell. Mol. Life Sci. 62 (16): 1784–803. doi:10.
Here we report the development and miniaturization of a cell-free enzyme assay for ultra-high-throughput screening (uHTS) for inhibitors of two potential drug targets for obesity and cancer: fatty acid synthase (FAS) and acetyl-coenzyme A (CoA) carboxylase (ACC) 2. This assay detects CoA, a product of the FAS-catalyzed condensation of malonyl-CoA and acetyl-CoA. The free thiol of CoA can react with 7-diethylamino-3-(4'-maleimidylphenyl)-4-methylcoumarin (CPM), a profluorescent coumarin maleimide derivative that becomes fluorescent upon reaction with thiols.
