CK1-ALPHA1 assay

Casein kinase 1 alpha 1

Synonyms: CK1, CK1a, CK1alpha, CKIa, CKIalpha, “clock regulator kinase”, CSNK1A1

Family: CK1 (Casein Kinase 1)

CK1 kinases isoforms are involved in diverse cellular processes including membrane trafficking, circadian rhythm, cell cycle progression, chromosome segregation, apoptosis and cellular differentiation1. CK1α is important for the mitotic spindle formation during cell division and DNA repair mechanisms and participates in RNA metabolism. CK1α, δ and ε were shown to have both positive and negative regulatory function in the Wnt pathway2.

CK1-ALPHA1 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.
