A microplate fluorimetric assay for measuring dehalogenase activity

Marchesi, Julian Roberto 2003. A microplate fluorimetric assay for measuring dehalogenase activity. Journal of Microbiological Methods 55 (1) , pp. 325-329. 10.1016/S0167-7012(03)00132-5

A fluorimetric assay was developed to measure halide release from halogenated compounds being degraded by microbes. The method relies on the property of halides to quench the fluorescence of 6-methoxy-N-(3-sulfopropyl)quinolinium (SPQ) by collision quenching. The assay shows a wide response to halide concentration (1–500 mM) and tolerates a wide pH range. Furthermore, it is simple to use, has the potential for automation and uses an inexpensive non-toxic reagent.
