|The Mer mertk (Catalog #MBS690843) is an Antibody produced from Mouse and is intended for research purposes only. The product is available for immediate purchase. The Mouse Anti-Human Mer reacts with Human and may cross-react with other species as described in the data sheet. MyBioSource\'s Mer can be used in a range of immunoassay formats including, but not limited to, Western Blot (WB). Researchers should empirically determine the suitability of the Mer mertk for an application not listed in the data sheet. Researchers commonly develop new applications and it is an integral, important part of the investigative research process.
The Mer mertk product has the following accession number(s) (GI #66932918) (NCBI Accession #NP_006334.2) (Uniprot Accession #Q12866). Researchers may be interested in using Bioinformatics databases such as those available at The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website for more information about accession numbers and the proteins they represent. Even researchers unfamiliar with bioinformatics databases will find the NCBI databases to be quite user friendly and useful.

Axl (Ufo, Ark), Dtk (Sky, Tyro3, Rse, Brt) and Mer (human and mouse homologues of chicken c-Eyk) constitute a receptor tyrosine kinase subfamily. The extracellular domains of these proteins contain two Ig-like motifs and two fibronectin type III motifs. This characteristic topology is also found in neural cell adhesion molecules and in receptor tyrosine phosphatases. These receptors bind the vitamin Kdependent protein growth-arrest-specific gene 6 (Gas6) which is structurally related to the anticoagulation factor protein S. Binding of Gas6 induces receptor autophosphorylation and downstream signaling pathways that can lead to cell proliferation, migration or the prevention of apoptosis. Recent studies suggest that this family of tyrosine kinase receptors may be involved in hematopoiesis, embryonic development, tumorigenesis and regulation of testicular functions.
Antibody Generation: This antibody was produced from a hybridoma (mouse myeloma fused with spleen cells from a mouse) immunized with human recombinant protein of Mer. Reconstitution: Reconstitute the antibody with 200 ul sterile PBS and the final concentration is 500 ug/ml. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing Mer are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as Mer may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results. Mer also interacts with the following gene(s): DDR1, DFNB59, GAS6, GRB2, PIK3R1, RPE65, SEMA4C, VAV1. Blood, Bone, Brain, Eye, Kidney, Liver, Lung, Muscle, Prostate, Testis tissues are correlated with this protein. Atherosclerosis, Brain Diseases, Death, Disease Models, Animal, Inflammation, Necrosis, Neoplasms, Nerve Degeneration, Nervous System Diseases, Retinitis Pigmentosa are some of the diseases may be linked to Mouse Anti-Human Mer.
