  • Species Reactivity
    Human
  • Specificity
    Detects human Mer in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, approximately 20% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse Mer and less than 1% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) Axl and rhDtk is observed.

Data Examples
Detection of Human Mer by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of U937 human histiocytic lymphoma cell line and PANC‑1 human pancreatic carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human Mer Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF891) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for Mer at approximately 170-230 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: Mer

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 K-dependent 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.
