Arxula - Yeast Bisphenol Screen
Detection of estrogenic effects
The A-YBS determines the BPAEQ (bisphenol A Equivalents) of aqueous samples. This test is sensitive and specific for the detection of bisphenols especially bisphenol A and bisphenol Z.
A factorial in-house validation was performed for method validation of the A-YBS.

In the yeast genome the gene for directly modificated1 human estrogen receptor (hERα) and a reporter gene cassette have been integrated.
Estrogens and estrogenically active substances bind to the receptors and the resulting complexes trigger the transcription of the reporter gene.
The reference standard for calibration and quantification is 17β-Estradiol (E2). The dose-response curve corresponds to a non-linear model.
The detection is performed photometrical after reaction of the reporter enzyme with the chromogenic substrate p-nitrophenyl phosphate at 405 nm.
