ADP-Glo Kinase Assay + CDK3/CyclinE1 Kinase Enzyme System
Recombinant full-length human CDK3 and Cyclin E1 were co-expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag on both proteins. CDK3/CyclinE1is a member of the cyclin-dependent protein kinase family and promotes entry into S phase, in part by activating members of the E2F family of transcription factors. CDK3 can also associate with cyclin C and phosphorylates the retinoblastoma 1 protein to promote exit from G0. The CDK3 gene has been mapped to chromosomal location of 17q22-qter, telomeric to the BRCA1 gene by somatic cell hybrids analysis (1). The presence of a single point mutation in the CDK3 gene from several Mus musculus strains commonly used in the laboratory has been reported (2). ADP-Glo Kinase Assay is a luminescent kinase assay that measures ADP formed from a kinase reaction; ADP is converted into ATP, which is a substrate in a reaction catalyzed by Ultra-Glo Luciferase that produces light. The luminescent signal positively correlates with ADP amount and kinase activity. The assay is well suited for measuring the effects chemical compounds have on the activity of a broad range of purified kinases, making it ideal for both primary screening as well as kinase selectivity profiling. The ADP-Glo Kinase Assay can be used to monitor the activity of virtually any ADP-generating enzyme (e.g., kinase or ATPase) using up to 1mM ATP.
