ADP-Glo Kinase Assay+ MAPKAPK3 Kinase Enzyme System
Recombinant full-length human MAPKAPK3 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. MAPKAPK3 is closely related to MAPKAPK2 sharing 72% nucleotide and 75% amino acid identity (1). MAPKAPK3 is activated by growth inducers and stress stimulation of cells. In vitro studies demonstrated that ERK, p38 MAP kinase and Jun N-terminal kinase were all able to phosphorylate and activate this kinase, which suggested the role of MAPKAPK3 as an integrative element of signaling in both mitogen and stress responses (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. Kinase Enzyme System contains: Kinase: MAPKAPK3, 10ug (Human, recombinant full-length). MW: ~69kDa. Substrate: HSP27tide (RRLNRQLSVA-amide); derived from the mouse HSP27 (amino acids 80-85). Other: Reaction Buffer, DTT. MAPKAPK3 NCBI Database Entry: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/7867/. Visit www.promega.com/kinase/ to see all Kinase Enzyme Systems.
