ADP-Glo Kinase Assay + IRAK4 Kinase Enzyme System
Recombinant full-length human IRAK4 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. Interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase 4 (IRAK4) is an important mediator in the signal transduction of Toll-like receptor (TLR) and IL1R family members. IRAK4 is involved in the Toll-like receptor signaling pathway leading to Apoptosis. IRAK4 has molecular functions like protein binding, ATP binding, kinase activity and magnesium ion binding. Toll/IL-1 receptor family members like IRAK4 are central components of host defense mechanisms in a variety of species. One well conserved element in their signal transduction is the Ser/Thr kinase activity, which couple early signaling events in a receptor complex at the plasma membrane to larger signalosomes in the cytosol. 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.
