Kinase Enzymes and Cell-Based Functional, Binding, and Activity Assays for Discovery through Development and for QC Lot-Release Testing

Kinases play a central in cell signaling to elicit many physiological responses. Dysregulation of kinase activity leads to many human diseases, especially cancer. A typical signaling pathway involves a kinase cascade to produce a cellular response starting with receptor activation via a ligand-induced activation step. Receptor-specific ligands, such as growth factors, result in receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK) dimerization or oligomerization. This often results in the receptors’ activation and autophosphorylation, allowing them to recruit and activate downstream mediators via their SH2 domains. This event then triggers a signaling cascade that leads to the phosphorylation and activation of downstream kinases to act upon various downstream target molecules, including several cytoplasmic targets and transcriptional factors. The activated targets elicit cellular responses that include the promotion of cell growth and division, protein translation, or other physiological responses.


Eurofins DiscoverX® offers an extensive portfolio of functional and binding cell-based assays, cell lines, and recombinant kinase enzymes to evaluate any kinase target-based signaling activities to aid your efforts from discovery through development into commercialization. Screen for novel kinase inhibitors, perform pharmacological profiling, and evaluate kinase activation from therapeutic binding. Utilize cell-based assays to determine therapeutic mechanism of action (MOA) and intracellular compound target engagement. Perform kinase activity assays measuring ADP production or substrate phosphorylation with one of the most extensive offerings of recombinant kinase enzymes available.


As the new home of the original Millipore (Upstate) kinase enzyme portfolio covering over >70% of the kinome combined with the clinically-proven PathHunter® MOA-reflective, cell-based assay platform, Eurofins DiscoverX has the kinase solutions you need to integrate into your discovery and development pipelines to accelerate your drug discovery programs.
