FER Kinase Enzyme System
Recombinant mouse FER (542-end) was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using a N-terminal GST tag. FER is a member of the FPS/FES family of nontransmembrane receptor tyrosine kinases. FER plays a role in regulating cytoskeletal rearrangements and inside out signalling that accompany receptor ligand, cell matrix and cell cell interactions. Genetic analysis using transgenic mouse models implicate FER in the regulation of inflammation and innate immunity. 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.
