Phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate 5-kinase (PIP5K) is an enzyme that converts phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate [PI4P] to phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate [PI(4,5)P2]. PIP5K plays a key role in the regulation of vesicular transport, cytoskeleton reorganization, and cell division. In general, to investigate an enzymatic activity of PIP5K, the amount of incorporated [P32] ATP into PI(4,5)P2 fraction is measured in in vitro reconstitution experiments. However, tools to monitor dynamic changes in its activity in real time have been lacking. Recently, we have developed a novel PIP5K assay using fluorescence spectroscopy. Compared to conventional methods in which lipids extraction steps are needed, our method is easy and quick to perform and enables a real-time analysis. This chapter provides a protocol to set up and perform the novel PIP5K assay we have recently established.
