||Recombinant Human Casein Kinase 2 alpha is a non-glycosylated polypeptide having a molecular mass of 45.1 kDa. Casein Kinase 2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
||The Casein kinase 2 (EC 18.104.22.168) is a serine/threonine-selective protein kinase that is a tetramer of two alpha subunits and two beta subunits. The alpha subunits have the catalytic kinase domain. Casein kinase 2 has been implicated in cell cycle control, DNA repair, regulation of the circadian rhythm and other cellular processes. Casein kinase 2 activity has been reported to be activated following Wnt signaling pathway activation. A Pertussis toxin-sensitive G protein and Disheveled appear to be an intermediary between Wnt-mediated activation of the Frizzled receptor and activation of casein kinase 2. Mice that lack casein kinase 2 alpha prime have a defect in the morphology of developing sperm.
||No protease activity detectable, specific activity > 1.320 U/mg (1U = 1µmol/min at 37 degree C) using the synthetic peptide RRRDDDSDDD.
