The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The ALK4 Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- ALK4 Kinase, 10μg (Human, recombinant; amino acids 150–end). MW: ~64kDa.
- Native Casein Protein Substrate; purified from bovine milk.
- Reaction Buffer, DTT.
Recombinant human ALK4 (150–end) was expressed in Sf9 cells using an N-terminal GST tag. ALK4 is a member of the subfamily of receptor ser/thr kinases that mediates signaling by the Activins. ALK4 is expressed in many human tissues, including kidney, pancreas, brain, lung and liver.
ALK4 NCBI Database Entry
The ALK4 Kinase Enzyme System can be purchased with or without the ADP-Glo™ Kinase Assay reagents. Used together, the ADP-Glo™ Kinase Assay + Kinase Enzyme Systems provide a convenient method for profiling the effect of lead compounds on kinase activity. Assay advantages include broad dynamic range, ease of use and high sensitivity. Kinase Enzyme Systems are manufactured by SignalChem. Bulk quantities available upon request.
Use with ADP-Glo™ Kinase Assay
The 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 of chemical compounds 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.
