Detection of Human Meteorin‑like/ METRNL by Western Blot. Western blot shows recombinant human Meteorin‑like/ METRNL (1 ng/lane). PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human Meteorin‑like/METRNL Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7867) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Meteorin‑like/METRNL at approximately 30 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

METRNL (Meteorin-like) is a cytoplasmic 30 kDa (predicted) member of the meteorin family of proteins. The name meteorin derives from the ability of the founding family member meteorin to transform glia into cells containing an extensive, meteor-like tail. It is expressed by neurons, and appears to function as a primer molecule that sets the stage for either cell differentiation or neurite outgrowth when it acts with Dclk1 and SerpinB1. Mature human METRNL is 266 amino acids (aa) in length (aa 46-311). It reportedly contains a signal sequence (aa 1-45), which suggests it may be secreted. Mature human and mouse METRNL share 79% aa sequence identity.
