Quantitating Kinase-Inhibitor Interactions in Live Cells

Kinase target engagement is a new way to study kinase inhibitors for target selectivity, potency and residency. The NanoBRET™ TE Intracellular Kinase Assays enable you to quantitate kinase-inhibitor binding in live cells, making these assays an exciting new tool for kinase drug discovery research.

For today’s blog about NanoBRET™ TE Intracellular Kinase Assay, we feature spokesperson Dr. Matt Robers. Matt is part of Promega’s R & D department and is one of the developers of the NanoBRET™ TE Intracellular Kinase Assay.

Matt was recorded at SLAS earlier this year. Here is the video:

If you’d like to learn more about the NanoBRET™ TE Intracellular Kinase Assays, the product page contains assay data and a table of the 127 full-length kinases currently available. We can also make an assay for your specific target.

You will also want to read the Cell Chemical Biology publication by Vasta, Robers, et al. (2017) on the product page for more details on the capabilities of the NanoBRET™ TE Kinase Assays. Looking for an assay that is specific to your research needs? Contact our Tailored R&D Solutions team.
