Insider Tips for GPCR signaling studies & phospho-Erk
Featured Product Apr 28, 2017
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are among the most abundant proteins in the body, and responsible for triggering numerous and diverse signaling cascades. Signaling through the MAPK/ERK pathway is activated through a variety of external stimuli, dependent on the G protein subtype coupled to the GPCR. Detecting ERK1/2 phosphorylation mediated by endogenous or overexpressed GPCRs is valuable for cellular research and drug discovery efforts, but offers challenges due to the abundance of related signaling pathways. The HTRF® Advanced phospho-ERK1/2 kit is a highly sensitive and reliable tool for detecting ERK1/2 phosphorylation mediated by GRPCs in various cellular models.
