FER assay

FER tyrosine kinase

Synonyms: “phosphoprotein NCP94”, PPP1R74, “protein phosphatase 1, regulatory subunit 74”, TYK3, “feline sarcoma and feline sarcoma-related kinase”

Family: TK

FER is a non-receptor tyrosine kinase, which is ubiquitously expressed and localised in cytoplasm throughout the cell cycle1. FER regulates cell cycle progression in prostate and breast cancer, as well as in acute myeloid leukaemia cells2.

FER 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.
