Recombinant full-length human MARK4 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. MARK4 or microtubule affinity-regulating kinase 4 is a member of the Par-1 family of serine/threonine protein kinases. MARK4 is predominantly expressed in the brain and readily phosphorylates Tau, MAP2 and MAP4. MARK4 co-localizes with the centrosome and microtubules in cultured cells. Overexpression of MARK4 causes thinning out of the microtubule network concomitant with the reorganization of microtubules into bundles. 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.
