Details...are you using cell extracts? a cell free system? Media?

There are a bunch of substrates that you can use but a few are unstable or
are teratogenic. Fluorescent substrates are by far the best to use in terms
of sensitivity. H2O2 is suprisingly a stable molecule.

If you are looking for in vivo assays, James McNamara over there at Duke
(Epilepsy centre, I think) has done a few of these.
