ASK1 assay

Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase 5

Synonyms: MAP3K5, “apoptosis signal regulating kinase 1”, ASK1, MAPKKK5, MEKK5

Family: STE

ASK1 is a member of ASK family, which is responsible for apoptosis signal-regulating. These are stress-responsive kinases, which can be activated by physicomecial or biological stresses. It is a mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase (MAP3K), which regulates c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) and p381.

ASK1 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.
