ABL assay

ABL proto-oncogene 1, non-receptor tyrosine kinase

Synonyms: c-ABL, JTK7, p150

Family: Tyrosine Kinase (TK)

c-Abl is a non-receptor tyrosine kinase and an indicator of oxidative stress1. Majority of studies are focused on the BCR-ABL oncoprotein and its inhibition2, however it was also shown that ABL has role in Parkinson’s disease1. In the normally  functioning cell, ABL has many functional targets from cell signaling adopters to phosphatases. c-Abl functions are implicated in a variety of biological processes including the regulation of cell growth and survival, integrin signaling, actin polymerization and cell migration1.

ABL 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.
