DYRK2 assay

Dual specificity tyrosine phosphorylation regulated kinase 2


Family: CMGC

DYRK2 is a dual specificity tyrosine kinase, which could phosphorylate both Ser/Thr and Tyr substrates1. DYRK2 regulates p53 through phosphorylation of S46 to induce apoptosis in response to DNA damage2. Down-regulation of DYRK2 is associated with a G2/M arrest1.

DYRK2 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.
