ADP-Glo Kinase Assay+ MAPKAPK2 Kinase Enzyme System
Recombinant human MAPKAPK2 (46-end) was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal His tag. MAPKAPK2 (MAPKAP kinase2) is a Ser/Thr protein kinase that is regulated via direct phosphorylation by p38 MAP kinase (1). In conjunction with p38 MAP kinase, MAPKAPK2 is known to be involved in many cellular processes including stress and inflammatory responses, nuclear export, gene expression regulation and cell proliferation. Heat shock protein HSP27 has been shown to be one of the substrates of MAPKAPK2, in vivo. 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. Kinase Enzyme System contains: Kinase: MAPKAPK2, 10ug (Human, recombinant; amino acids 46-end). MW: ~41kDa. Substrate: HSP27tide (RRLNRQLSVA-amide); derived from the mouse HSP27 (amino acids 80-85).
