The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The IRAK1 Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- IRAK1 Kinase, 10μg (Human, recombinant full-length). MW: ~132kDa
- Modified AKT Substrate (1mg/ml) (modified-CKRPRAASFAE), based on the N-terminus of GSK3
- 5X Reaction Buffer, 0.1M DTT
Recombinant full-length human IRAK1 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. IRAK1 encodes the interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase 1, one of two putative serine/threonine kinases that become associated with the interleukin-1 receptor (IL1R) upon stimulation. The exposure of HeLa cells or human embryonic kidney cells overexpressing IL1R to IL1 caused rapid association of IRAK with the IL1R complex and phosphorylation of IRAK. IRAK1 is partially responsible for IL1-induced upregulation of the transcription factor NF-kappa B. IRAK1 as a risk gene with critical role in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus.
NCBI Database Entry
The IRAK1 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.
