The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The BCR-RET Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- BCR-RET Kinase, 10μg [Human, recombinant; amino acids 1–426 (BCR), 713–end (RET)]. MW: ~140kDa
- IGF1Rtide Substrate (1mg/ml), (KKKSPGEYVNIEFG), derived from human IRS-1 protein residues 891–902
- 5X Reaction Buffer, 0.1M DTT
Recombinant human BCR-RET, the fusion protein [BCR (amino acids 1–426)-RET (amino acids 713–end)], was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. BCR-RET is a chimeric fusion of BCR and RET genes generated by a balanced translocation of genes from t(10;22)(q11;q11) and this leads to aberrant activation of RET activity which can transform hematopoietic cells and skew the hematopoietic differentiation program towards the monocytic/macrophage lineage.
NCBI Database Entry
The BCR-RET 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.
