BRSK2 assay

Brain specific kinase 2

Synonyms: SAD-A, PEN11B, “serine/threonine kinase 29”, C11orf7, STK29

Family: CAMK (Ca2+/calmodulin- dependent protein kinase)

Brain-specific kinases (BRSK1/2) are AMP-activated protein kinase that are highly expressed in mammalian forebrain1. They play a role in  in polarization of neurons and centrosome duplication1,2.

BRSK2 kinase assay is run on mobility shift microfluidics platform (Caliper), which provides best in industry quality of data. We routinely run services associated with this kinase including: screening, profiling, dose-response studies and kinetic measurements. Please contact us for more information.
