HCK Kinase Enzyme System
Recombinant human HCK (amino acids 230-497) was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using a N-terminal GST tag. HCK, a protein-tyrosine kinase belonging to the Src family, is expressed in certain hemopoietic cells and especially prominent in cells of myeloid lineage, particularly mature granulocytes and monocytes. 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.
