AnaSpec Introduces Kinase Substrates as GO™ Peptides
Product News Sep 18, 2008
Protein kinases are a transferase family of self-regulatory enzymes that catalyze the phosphorylation of other proteins by covalently attaching phosphate groups to them, using ATP as a phosphate donor.
Reversible protein phosphorylation-dephosphorylation has a principal role in the regulation of essentially all cellular functions and most aspects of cell life, and phosphorylation by protein kinases is a major signal transduction mechanism that regulates gene expression, proliferation, membrane transport, cell metabolism and many other cellular functions by modifiying other proteins.
AnaSpec carries over 300 kinase substrates as part of its GO™ line of research-ready peptides.
