MINK1 Kinase Enzyme System
Recombinant human MINK1 (1-320) was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 cells using an N-terminal GST tag. MINK1 is a member of the germinal center family of kinases that are homologous to the Ste20 family and regulate a wide variety of cellular processes, including cell morphology, cytoskeletal rearrangement and survival. Overexpression of kinase-dead mutants of MINK1 leads to enhanced cell spreading, actin stress fiber formation, adhesion to extracellular matrix and decreased cell motility and invasion. MINK is activated after Ras induction via a mechanism involving reactive oxygen species and mediates stimulation of p38 MAPK downstream of the Raf/ERK 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.
