The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The CAMK4 Kinase Enzyme System contains:
CAMK4 Kinase, 10μg (Human, recombinant full-length). MW: ~79kDa.
Autocamtide-2 Substrate (KKALRRQETVDAL-amide); derived from the autophosphorylation site (amino acid 283–290) on CaMKII.
- Reaction Buffer, DTT, Ca2+/Calmodulin solution.
Recombinant full-length human CAMK4 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. CAMK4 is a multifunctional serine/threonine protein kinase and a member of Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase family. CAMK4 is localized in neurons in the hippocampus, amygdala, anterior cingulate cortex, somatosensory cortex and insular cortex. CAMK4 is involved in neural activity-dependent signaling in the neuronal nucleus and thought to play an important role in the consolidation/retention of hippocampus-dependent long-term memory.

The CAMK4 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.
