The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The NEK2 Kinase Enzyme System contains:
NEK2 Kinase, 10μg (Human, recombinant full-length). MW: ~76kDa.
Native Swine Myelin Basic Protein (MBP) Substrate.
Reaction Buffer, DTT.
Recombinant full-length human NEK2 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. NEK2 is closely related in its catalytic domain to the serine/threonine protein kinase NIMA of Aspergillus nidulans that is required for entry into mitosis and may function in parallel to the universal mitotic inducer p34cdc2. Like NIMA, the NEK2 protein is almost undetectable during G1 but accumulated progressively throughout S, reaching maximal levels in late G2. NEK2 is shown to be expressed most abundantly in the testis of the adult tissues examined being localized to the nucleus.
NEK2 NCBI Database Entry.
The NEK2 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.
