Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  p38 MAPKα Enzyme Inhibition Assay
Description:  The inhibitory activities of test compounds against the p38 MAPKα isoform (MAPK14: Invitrogen), are evaluated indirectly by determining the level of activation/phosphorylation of the down-stream molecule, MAPKAP-K2. The p38 MAPK&dlpha; protein (80 ng/mL, 2.5 uL) is mixed with the test compound (2.5 uL of either 4 ug/mL, 0.4 ug/mL, 0.04 ug/mL or 0.004 ug/mL) for 2 hr at RT. The mix solution (2.5 uL) of the p38&dlpha; inactive target MAPKAP-K2 (Invitrogen, 600 ng/mL) and FRET peptide (8 uM; a phosphorylation target for MAPKAP-K2) is then added and the kinase reaction is initiated by adding ATP (40 uM, 2.5 uL). The mixture is incubated for 1 hr at RT. Development reagent (protease, 5 uL) is added for 1 hr prior to detection in a fluorescence microplate reader (Varioskan Flash, ThermoFisher Scientific).
