The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The SGK1 Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- SGK1 Kinase, 10μg (Human, recombinant; amino acids 60–end). MW: ~73kDa.
Akt (PKB) Substrate (CKRPRAASFAE).
Reaction Buffer, DTT.
Recombinant human SGK1 (amino acids 60–end) was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. SGK1 is a member of the serum- and glucocorticoid-induced protein kinase family that is activated in vitro by 3-phosphoinositide-dependent protein kinase-1 (PDK1) and in vivo in response to signals that activate phosphatidylinositol (PI) 3-kinase. SGK1 mRNA is expressed in all tissues, and the level of SGK1 mRNA is increased by stimulation with serum or dexamethasone. SGK1 promotes cell survival by phosphorylating and inactivating FKHRL1. SGK and Akt display differences with respect to the efficacy with which they phosphorylate the three regulatory sites on FKHRL1.
SGK1 NCBI Database Entry.
The SGK1 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.
