ADP-Glo Kinase Assay + NEK2 Kinase Enzyme System
Recombinant full-length human NEK2 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. NEK2 is closely related in its catalytic domain to the serine/threonine protein kinase NIMA of Aspergillus nidulans that is required for entry into mitosis and may function in parallel to the universal mitotic inducer p34cdc2. Like NIMA, the NEK2 protein is almost undetectable during G1 but accumulated progressively throughout S, reaching maximal levels in late G2. NEK2 is shown to be expressed most abundantly in the testis of the adult tissues examined being localized to the nucleus. 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: NEK2, 10ug (Human, recombinant full-length). MW: ~76kDa. Substrate: Native Swine Myelin Basic Protein (MBP). Other: Reaction Buffer, DTT.
