The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The PIM1 Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- PIM1 Kinase, 10μg (Human, recombinant full-length). MW: ~62kDa.
- S6K Substrate (KRRRLASLR); derived from human 40S ribosomal protein S6 (amino acids 230–238).
- Reaction Buffer, DTT.
Recombinant full-length human PIM1 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. PIM1 is a proto-oncogene that belongs to a family of serine/threonine protein kinases that are highly conserved throughout evolution in multicellular organisms. Originally identified from Moloney murine leukemia virus induced T-cell lymphomas in mice, PIM1 is involved in the control of cytokine-mediated cell proliferation, differentiation and survival of lymphoid and myeloid cells as well as others. Expression of PIM1 can be stimulated by a variety of growth factors and is regulated at four different levels: transcriptional, post-transcriptional, translational and post-translational. Expression of PIM1 is mediated through activation of the JAK/STAT pathway.

The PIM1 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.
