Description

This recombinant fusion protein consists of full-length activin A receptor kinase and a glutathione S-transferase (GST) tag. It is validated in the LanthaScreen® Eu Kinase Binding Assay. No special measures were taken to activate this kinase.
Compatible and validated with the LanthaScreen® Eu Kinase Binding Assay
Expressed in insect cells
GST tagged for use with Eu-labeled GST antibody

Easily Screen for Kinase Binding
The LanthaScreen® Eu Kinase Binding Assay is a TR-FRET assay that lets you measure inhibitor binding to non-activated kinases, perform simple off-rate measurements, and makes simple the study of type III (allosteric) inhibitors.

The LanthaScreen® Eu Kinase Binding Assay is easy to optimize and run. The assay uses a simple mix-and-read format with a single one hour incubation and no development steps. Simultaneous binding of an Alexa Fluor® conjugate or “tracer” to a tagged kinase is detected by addition of a europium-labeled anti-tag antibody, in this case anti-GST. Simultaneous binding of the tracer and antibody to the kinase results in a high degree of fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), while displacement of the tracer with a kinase inhibitor results in a loss of FRET (Fig 1).

ACVR2A for the LanthaScreen Kinase Binding Assay
Activin A receptor kinase (ACVR2A) is a type II member of the TGF-beta family of receptor Serine/Threonine kinases. ACVR2A is involved in the activin and myostatin signaling pathway. (ACVR2A Aliases: ACVR2, ACTRII).

This insect cell-expressed recombinant fusion protein of full-length ACVR2A and GST tag has been validated in the LanthaScreen® Eu Kinase Binding Assay with these reagents:
 Tracer 236 (Cat No. PV5592)
•  Eu-labeled GST Antibody (Cat No. PV5594)

For Research Use Only. Not intended for any animal or human therapeutic or diagnostic use.
