Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  In Vitro Kinase Assay
Description:  MNK1 and MNK2 inhibitor activity was determined using recombinant kinase domains expressed in E. coli. MNK1 and MNK2 were expressed as GST fusion proteins and the GST tag was removed using PreScission protease. After concentration to 10-15 mg/ml the proteins were flash frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored at −80 C. MNK1 and MNK2 were activated using recombinant ERK2 which was activated using a constitutively active mutant of MEK1, both ERK2 and MEK1 were expressed in E. coli as N-terminally his tagged proteins. Recombinant ERK2 was activated by incubating 11.3 μM of the kinase with 1 μM MEK1 and 100 μM ATP. This reaction mixture was then used immediately for the activation of the MNKs. The activation of the MNK1 was performed by incubating 5.0 μM of MNK1 with 0.3 μM of activated ERK2 and 500 μM ATP at 30 C. for 6 hours. The activation of MNK2 was performed by incubating 50 μM of MNK2 with 3.0 μM of activated ERK2 and 500 μM ATP at 30 C. for 2 hours. The activated MNKs were stored at −20 C. until required for assay.
