The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The FLT3 Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- FLT3 Kinase, 10μg (Human, recombinant; amino acids 571–993). MW: ~73kDa.
- Native Swine Myelin Basic Protein (MBP) Substrate.
- Reaction Buffer, DTT.
Recombinant human FLT3 (571–993) was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. FLT3 is a receptor tyrosine kinase that has been shown to play a role in proliferation and survival of hematopoietic progenitor cells as well as differentiation of early B lymphoid progenitors. FLT3 consists of an extracellular domain composed of five immunoglobulin-like domains, one transmembrane region and a cytoplasmic kinase domain split into two parts by a kinase-insert domain. FLT3 is the most frequently mutated gene in cases of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). About 30% to 35% of patients have either internal tandem duplications (ITDs) in the juxtamembrane domain or mutations in the activating loop of FLT3. The consequence of either FLT3-ITD or activating loop mutations is the constitutive activation of the tyrosine kinase activity.

The FLT3 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.
