The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The SIK Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- SIK Kinase, 10μg (Human, recombinant; amino acids 1–303). MW: ~36kDa.
- AMARA Peptide (AMARAASAAALARRR) Substrate.
- Reaction Buffer, DTT.
Recombinant human SIK (1–303) was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal His tag. SIK is a protein kinase that is involved in regulating AMPK-related kinases. SIK may mediate the physiological effects of LKB1, including its tumour suppressor function. SIK is also involved in signaling by various proteins like STRAD, NUAK1, NUAK2, BRSK1, BRSK2, QIK, QSK, SIK, MARK1, MARK2, MARK3, MARK4 and MELK that are related to AMPK. Activation of SIK1 by phosphorylation on Thr322 can lead to an increase in the catalytic activity of sodium/potassium ATPase alpha subunit at the plasma membrane. This results in an increase in intracellular sodium in intact mammalian cells.

The SIK 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.
