Future Market Insights
Chromogenic substrates are the polymers of amino acids that react with proteolytic enzymes and forms a color. Chromogenic substrates are prepared artificially in the laboratories and they are designed in such a way that they resemble the original substrate of the enzyme in selectivity. This is an essential feature because most of the natural enzymes are very selective for their substrates. The segment of the chromogenic substrate which is attached to the enzyme, contains a chemical group, when this chemical group is cleaved from the enzyme it forms a specific color. The color produced by the chromogenic substrate is directly proportional to the proteolytic activity. Chromogenic substrates are composed of amino acid residue, a protective group, chromophore and sometimes a side chain modification. Chromogenic substrates are more sensitive than the natural substances and can detect even a slight difference in the enzyme activity or enzyme concentrastion. But on the contrast a chromogenic substrate generally is less selective than the natural enzyme and can be less discriminative in their activity towards related enzymes.
Chromogenic substrates were developed to identify and study the phenomenon related to mast cell tryptase, elastase regulation and factors associated with blood coagulation and fibrinolysis. Chromogenic substates are also useful in food microbiology experiments.
Chromogenic Substrate Market: Drivers and Restraints
The market for chromogenic substrate is expected to be driven by the the increase in the number of research laboratories worldwide owing to the increased funding from government and non-governmental organizations for research pupose. Other factor that can drive the growth of the chromogenic substrate market is the increase in the number of patients suffering from any type of microbial infection which can be detected using the chromogenic substrates. The increase in the number of patients is due to the factors like growing population or changes in the lifestyle that make a person more prone to infections. Chromogenic substrates market is also expected to grow due to the increase in the number of food microbiology experiments required to fulfil the ever-increasing demand of food worldwide.
The most important challenges that the chromogenic substrate market can face include the less selectivity of the chromogenic substrates that can prevent many technicians to use a chromogenic substrate for experiments or other applications.
