PathHunter® CTK Activity cell lines are engineered to express the catalytic domain from CTK of interest fused to the cytokine receptor binding domain (CRBD) of a JAK kinase. The cells co-express an Enzyme Acceptor (EA) tagged SH2 domain and a ProLink™ (PK) tagged Cytokine receptor. The CRBD is designed to bind the CTK catalytic domain to the receptor-PK. Activation of the cytokine receptor-PK induces receptor phosphorylation by the CTK catalytic domain. This leads to SH2-EA recruitment, forcing complementation of the two β-galactosidase enzyme fragments (EA and PK). The resulting functional enzyme hydrolyzes substrate to generate a chemiluminescent signal. These cells have been modified to prevent long term propagation and expansion using a proprietary compound that has no apparent effect on assay performance.
