The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The MYLK2 Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- MYLK2 Kinase, 10μg (Human, full-length recombinant). MW: ~74kDa
- LC20 protein (0.5mg/ml); LC20 is the myosin light chain
- 5X Reaction Buffer, 10X Ca2+/Calmodulin solution II, 0.1M DTT
Recombinant full-length human MYLK2 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal His tag. MYLK2 is a member of the myosin light chain kinase family and is a calcium/calmodulin dependent enzyme that is exclusively expressed in adult skeletal muscle. MYLK2 has been proposed to participate in signaling pathways (calcium signaling pathway, focal adhesion, regulation of actin cytoskeleton) and cellular processes (neuromuscular synaptic transmission, protein/amino acid phosphorylation). MYLK2 is involved in multiple molecular functions as a result of various subdomains that participate in ATP binding, calmodulin binding, nucleotide binding, protein serine/threonine kinase activity and transferase activity).
NCBI Database Entry
The MYLK2 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.
