ITK assay

IL2 inducible T-cell kinase

Synonyms: EMT, LYK, PSCTK2

Family: TK

ITK is one of the five Tec tyrosine kinases, which are involved in multiple receptor-mediated signaling pathways in many cell types. ITK is essential mediator of intracellular signaling in T-cells and was shown to be activated via T-cell receptor (TCR) stimulation1. ITK inhibitors have therapeutic potential in a number of human autoimmune, inflammatory, and malignant diseases2.

ITK 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.
