Adenylate kinase (AK) catalyzes the nucleotide phosphoryl interconversion of ATP+AMP[??]2ADP.
These compounds could be incorporated in different peptides and protein molecules, and in the present work, we are analyzing the effects of this interaction on adenylate kinase.
Adenylate kinase (AK) is another vital part of energy metabolism in all living things.
Easy-to-use, reliable bioluminescence-based systems with ATP (adenosine triphosphate) yield definitive results within 24-48 hours, while even more sensitive AK (adenylate kinase)-enhanced bioluminescence assays are accurate and reliable within 18-24 hours.
By using adenylate kinase (AK) to amplify the ATP bioluminescence response, AkuScreen provides accurate readings in less time so companies can reduce inventory and manufacturing lead times, improve efficiencies and increase available working capital.
Human gastric mucosal cells express the mitochondrial and cytosolic isoforms of creatinine kinase and adenylate kinase that participate in intracellular energy transfer systems, and an altered functioning of these systems and oxidative phosphorylation may account for mucosal ulceration (Gruno et al., 2006).
