ADP-Glo Kinase Assay + PIM1 Kinase Enzyme System
Recombinant full-length human PIM1 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. PIM1 is a proto-oncogene that belongs to a family of serine/threonine protein kinases that are highly conserved throughout evolution in multicellular organisms. Originally identified from Moloney murine leukemia virus induced T-cell lymphomas in mice, PIM1 is involved in the control of cytokine-mediated cell proliferation, differentiation and survival of lymphoid and myeloid cells as well as others (1). Expression of PIM1 can be stimulated by a variety of growth factors and is regulated at four different levels: transcriptional, post-transcriptional, translational and post-translational (2). Expression of PIM1 is mediated through activation of the JAK/STAT pathway. 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: PIM1, 10ug (Human, recombinant full-length). MW: ~62kDa. Substrate: S6K Substrate (KRRRLASLR); derived from human 40S ribosomal protein S6 (amino acids 230-238). Other: Reaction Buffer, DTT. PIM1 NCBI Database Entry: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/5292/.
