Autotaxin (ATX) Activity Assay Service

The Autotaxin (ATX) Activity Assay Service uses the Autotaxin Activity Assay Kit (cat # K-4100) to quantify ATX activity in biological samples. ATX is an extracellular enzyme that cleaves lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) to generate the phospholipid growth factor lysophophatidic acid (LPA). LPA is involved in a variety of biological functions, such as angiogenesis, wound healing, vascular and nervous system development, reproduction, pain transmission, immunological competence and the regulation of blood pressure. Altered LPA biology is associated with a number of diseases. Likewise, autotaxin has been implicated in a number of disorders, including a variety of cancers, obesity, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and neuropathic pain.
