The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The NUAK2 Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- NUAK2 Kinase, 10μg (Human, recombinant full length). MW: ~110kDa.
- CHKtide (KKKVSRSGLYRSPSMPENLNRPR) Substrate; derived from the human CDC25C protein isoform A (amino acid 205–225).
- Reaction Buffer, DTT.
Recombinant full-length human NUAK2 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. NUAK2 or SNF1/AMP kinase-related kinase (SNARK) is a member of the NUAK family of SNF1-like kinase 2. NUAK2 is activated by muscle contraction and is a unique mediator of contraction-stimulated glucose transport in skeletal muscle. NUAK2 is involved in cellular stress responses linked to obesity and type 2 diabetes. NUAK2 shows kinase activity against a synthetic test peptide and the activity in keratinocytes is increased by AMP and 5-amino-4-imidazolecarboxamide riboside, implying that AMPK kinase-dependent pathway can activate NAUK2. Glucose deprivation also increases NAUK2 activity in baby hamster kidney fibroblasts.
NUAK2 NCBI Database Entry.
The NUAK2 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.
