Pyk2 Kinase (Human) Assay/Inhibitor Screening Assay Kit is a single-site, non-quantitative immunoassay for kinase activity of recombinant catalytic domain of Met. Plates are pre-coated with a newly designed "Tyrosine kinase-substrate-1", which can be easily phosphorylated by recombinant catalytic domain of Met. The detector antibody is PY-39, an antibody that specifically detects the phosphotyrosine residue on "Tyrosine kinase-substrate-1".

This gene encodes a cytoplasmic protein tyrosine kinase which is involved in calcium-induced regulation of ion channels and activation of the map kinase signaling pathway. The encoded protein may represent an important signaling intermediate between neuropeptide-activated receptors or neurotransmitters that increase calcium flux and the downstream signals that regulate neuronal activity. The encoded protein undergoes rapid tyrosine phosphorylation and activation in response to increases in the intracellular calcium concentration, nicotinic acetylcholine receptor activation, membrane depolarization, or protein kinase C activation. This protein has been shown to bind CRK-associated substrate, nephrocystin, GTPase regulator associated with FAK, and the SH2 domain of GRB2. The encoded protein is a member of the FAK subfamily of protein tyrosine kinases but lacks significant sequence similarity to kinases from other subfamilies. Four transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq
