The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The PLK1 Kinase Enzyme System contains:
PLK1 Kinase, 10μg (Human, recombinant full-length). MW: ~70kDa.
Casein, Dephosphorylated (Bovine) Substrate.
Reaction Buffer, DTT.
Recombinant full-length human PLK1 was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal His tag. PLK1 is a member of the Polo-Like Kinase family, which localizes to centrosomes or spindle pole bodies and undergoes dramatic subcellular relocation during the cell cycle. Deregulated activities of PLKs often result in abnormalities in centrosome duplication, maturation and/or microtubule dynamics. PLKs also regulate the function of the Golgi complex. Deregulated expression of human PLK1 is strongly correlated with the development of many types of malignancies, and ectopic expression of PLK1 dominant negative protein leads to rapid cell death.
PLK1 NCBI Database Entry.
The PLK1 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.
