ADP-Glo™ Kinase Assay Technical Manual
Literature # TM313
The ADP-Glo™ Kinase Assay is a luminescent ADP detection assay that provides a universal, homogeneous, high-throughput screening method to measure kinase activity by quantifying the amount of ADP produced during a kinase reaction. 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. The ADP-Glo™ Kinase Assay is performed in a multiwell plate and can detect kinase activity in a reaction volume as low as 5μl. The assay is performed in two steps; first, after the kinase reaction, an equal volume of ADP-Glo™ Reagent is added to terminate the kinase reaction and deplete the remaining ATP. Second, the Kinase Detection Reagent is added to simultaneously convert ADP to ATP and allow the newly synthesized ATP to be measured using a luciferase/luciferin reaction. The light generated is measured using a luminometer. Luminescence can be correlated to ADP concentrations by using an ATP-to-ADP conversion curve.
