Protein kinase CK2 (Casein kinase II) is an ubiquitous and highly conserved protein serine/threonine kinase  that is typically found in tetrameric complexes consisting of two catalytic (alpha and/or alpha\') subunits and two regulatory beta subunits. CK2 has a number of physiological targets and participates in a complex series of cellular functions including the maintenance of cell viability. It has long been considered to play a role in cell growth and proliferation and considerable evidence suggests that it can also exert potent suppression of apoptosis in cells. In normal cells, the level of CK2 appears to be tightly regulated, and cells resist a change in their intrinsic level of CK2. However, in all the cancers that have been examined an elevation of CK2 has been observed. Recent evidence suggests that CK2 can exert an anti-apoptotic role by protecting regulatory proteins from caspase-mediated degradation. Furthermore, the anti-apoptotic function of CK2 may contribute to its ability to participate in transformation and tumorigenesis.

Purified human recombinant CK2 hole enzyme, subunits alpha 2 C336S and beta expressed separately, CK2 (alpha 2) with a N-terminal His-tag in E. coli, beta as non-fusion protein in E. coli. Reconstituted to the holoenzyme in the course of the purification. Constitutively active. Suitable for labeling CK2 substrates. Purified by several chromatography steps (Ni-sepharose,heparin, gel-filtration). CK2 (alpha 2) C336S does not form intermolecular disulfide bridges via the C-terminal Cysteine 336. Size exclusion analysis suggests a tetrameric holoenzyme structure with two CK2 (alpha 2) and two CK2 beta subunits.
