A miniaturized assay for measuring small molecule phosphorylation in the presence of complex matrices

Spry, Christina; Saliba, Kevin; Strauss, Erick


We describe here a simple, miniaturized radiation-based phosphorylation assay that can be used to monitor phosphorylation of a diverse range of small molecule substrates in the presence of purified and crude enzyme preparations. Ba(OH)2 and ZnSO4 are used to terminate phosphoryl transfer and to precipitate selectively the phosphorylated reaction product in a single step; non-phosphorylated substrate is removed by filtration prior to quantification. The key advantages over alternative...[Show more]
