HCK assay

Hematopoietic cell kinase

Synonyms: JTK9, “hemopoietic cell kinase”

Family: TK

HCK is a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase and a member of Src family1. It is expressed in lymphoid and myeloid cells and is bound to B-cell receptors in unstimulated B-cells2. Once activated, HCK engages a range of downstream signaling pathways that mediate various aspects of the immune response

HCK 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.
