HIPK4 assay

Homeodomain interacting protein kinase 4

Synonyms: FLJ32818

Family: CMGC

HIPK4 is a member of homeodomain-interacting protein kinase family. HIPKs interact with a vast range of functional proteins, including not only transcriptional regulators and chromatin modifiers, but also cytoplasmic signal transducers, transmembrane proteins, and SUMO ligase1. HIPK4 is a unique member of HIPK family due to its smaller in size and additional distinct features2. HIPK4 lacks a nuclear localization signal and a C-terminal autoinhibitory domain compared to other HIPK proteins.

HIPK4 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.
