The Kinase Enzyme Systems include a recombinant kinase enzyme, a substrate appropriate for the enzyme, a reaction buffer and supplemental reagents as needed. The TAOK1 Kinase Enzyme System contains:
- TAOK1 Kinase, 10μg (Human, recombinant; amino acids 1–314). MW: ~63kDa.
- Native Swine Myelin Basic Protein (MBP) Substrate.
- Reaction Buffer, DTT.
Recombinant human TAOK1 (1–314) was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. TAOK1 is a serine/threonine-protein kinase involved in regulation of the p38-containing stress-responsive MAP kinase pathway and extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase (ERK) kinases (MEKs). The activation of and binding to MEK3 by TAOK1 implicates TAOK1 in the regulation of the p38-containing stress-responsive MAP kinase pathway. A microtubule affinity-regulating kinase kinase, TAOK1 (also known as MARKK) is an important regulator of mitotic progression, required for both chromosome congression and checkpoint-induced anaphase delay.

The TAOK1 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.
