The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The MASTL Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- MASTL Kinase, 10μg (Human, full-length recombinant). MW: ~150kDa
- ARPP19 Protein, recombinant (0.5µg/µl)
- 5X Reaction Buffer, 0.1M DTT
Full-length recombinant human MASTL was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. Microtubule associated serine/threonine kinase-like (MASTL) belongs to the MAST family, AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase group. MASTL promotes mitotic progression and cell cycle reentry after DNA damage. Loss of MASTL leads to defects in chromosome condensation, separation, and other aspects of mitotic progression, which is primarily mediated by inhibiting PP2A/B55δ. Overexpression of MASTL is correlated with cancer progression, poor patient survival, and tumor recurrence in various cancers.
NCBI Database Entry
The MASTL 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.
