Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Radioactivity Based Kinase Assay
Description:  The kinase activity is measured using a radioactivity based kinase assay, which measures the incorporation of a radioactively labeled phosphate moiety (for example, 33P labeled phosphate) into a substrate, for example, a peptide substrate. Reduced levels of radioactively labeled phosphate incorporation into the substrate indicates inhibition of kinase activity. In another embodiment, the kinase activity is measured using a time-resolved-fluorescence resonance energy transfer (TR-FRET) based kinase assay, which measures loss of fluorescence as a result of substrate phosphorylation, for example, a peptide substrate (see for example Invitrogen Z'-Lyte Assay®). Increased levels of fluorescence indicates inhibition of kinase activity. In another embodiment, the kinase activity is measured using a competitive tracer binding assay (for example, Invitrogen Lanthascreen® Eu binding assay), which measures fluorescence as a result of tracer binding (for example ATP site binding). Reduced fluorescence indicates displacement of tracer binding, which indicates inhibition of kinase activity.
