The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The CAMK2β Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- CAMK2β Kinase, 10μg (Human, full-length recombinant). MW: ~58kDa
- Autocamtide-2 Substrate (1mg/ml), (KKALRRQETVDAL-amide); derived from the autophosphorylation site (amino acid 283–290) on CaMKII.
- 5X Reaction Buffer, 10X Ca2+/Calmodulin solution II, 0.1M DTT
Recombinant full-length human CAMK2β was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 cells using an N-terminal His tag. CAMK2β belongs to the serine/threonine protein kinase family and to the type II multifunctional Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase subfamily. CAMK2β showed wide tissue and cell distribution, and one of CAMK2β variant predominated in adult brain.
NCBI Database Entry
The CAMK2β 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.
