Detects mouse Dtk in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISA and Western blots, approximately 20% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) Dtk is observed, and less than 1% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) Axl, rmMer and rhAxl is observed.
Dtk in Mouse Embryo. Dtk was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse embryo (13 d.p.c, follicles of vibrissae associated with upper lip) using Goat Anti-Mouse Dtk Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF759) at 5 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the follicles of vibrissa. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

Axl (Ufo, Ark), Dtk (Sky, Tyro3, Rse, Brt) and Mer (human and mouse homologues of chicken c-Eyk) constitute a new receptor tyrosine kinase subfamily. The extracellular domain 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. All three receptors bind the vitamin K-dependent protein growth-arrest specific gene 6 (Gas6) which is structurally related to the anticoagulation factor protein S. The binding affinities for Gas6 is in the order of Axl > Dtk > Mer. Gas6 binding induces tyrosine phosphorylation and downstream signaling pathways that can lead to cell proliferation, migration, or the prevention of apoptosis. Dtk is widely expressed during embryonic development. In adults, Dtk is predominantly expressed in neurons in restricted regions of the brain.
