Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  MNK Biochemical Enzymatic Assay
Description:  Compounds are screened for MNK inhibition using the ADP-Glo kinase assay kit (Promega, catalogue No. V9101). All kinase reactions are performed in Reaction Buffer E (15 mM HEPES pH7.4, 20 mM NaCl, 1 mM EGTA, 10 mM MgCl2, 0.1 mg/ml BGG, and 0.02% Tween-20). Final MNK1 reactions contained 10 nM recombinant MNK1 (Life Technologies, PR9138A), 100 μM MNK substrate peptide Ac-TATKSGSTTKNR-NH2 (amino acid sequence shown SEQ ID NO: 1) (American Peptide Company), 300 μM ATP, and varying concentrations of the inhibitory compound of interest. Final MNK2 reactions contained 3 nM recombinant MNK2 (Life Technologies, PV5607), 50 μM MNK substrate peptide Ac-TATKSGSTTKNR-NH2 (amino acid sequence shown SEQ ID NO: 1) (American Peptide Company), 10 μM ATP, and varying concentrations of the inhibitory compound of interest. Final DMSO concentration in each reaction is 1%.Kinase reactions are carried out in 96-well half-area white flat-bottom polystyrene plates in a final volume of 25 μl. MNK1/2 enzymes are pre-incubated with compound and peptide substrate for 5 minutes prior to the addition of ATP. After the addition of ATP, kinase reactions are incubated at room temperature for 40 minutes. Reactions are subsequently stopped by the addition of 25 μl of ADP-Glo Reagent and incubating for an additional 40 minutes. The final luminescent signal used for kinase activity readout is produced by the addition of 45 μl of Kinase Detection Reagent (ADP-Glo kit, Promega) and incubating for 40 minutes. The luminescent signal is detected using a Victor 2 multilabel counter (Perkin Elmer) and the concentration of compound necessary to achieve inhibition of enzyme activity by 50% (IC50) is calculated using signals from an 8-point compound dilution series.
