ADP-Glo Kinase Assay + GRK5 Kinase Enzyme System
Recombinant full-length human GRK5 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 cells using an N-terminal GST tag. GRK5 is a member of the guanine nucleotide-binding protein (G protein)-coupled receptor kinase subfamily of the Ser/Thr protein kinase family. It phosphorylates the activated forms of G protein-coupled receptors thus initiating their deactivation. GRK5 plays a role in regulating the motility of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs). Desensitization of G protein-coupled receptors regulates the number of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs), as well as their motility and ability to stop pathogens or target cells upon contact, and this desensitization is mediated by GRK5. 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.
