R&D Systems' Mouse Phospho-Receptor Tyrosine Kinase (RTK) Array Kit (Catalog # ARY014) is a screening tool designed to simultaneously detect the relative phosphorylation of 39 different RTKs. The Kit eliminates the need for numerous immunoprecipitation (IP) and/or Western blot experiments. RTKs are captured by antibodies spotted on a nitrocellulose membrane. Levels of phospho-RTK are then assessed using an HRP-conjugated pan phospho-tyrosine antibody followed by chemiluminescence detection.
|Simultaneously detect the relative phosphorylation of these RTKs in a single sample|
|EGF R||PDGF R alpha||VEGF R3|
|ErbB2||PDGF R beta||MuSK|
|FGF R2 (IIIc)||M-CSF R||EphA3|
|HGF R||VEGF R2|
Carefully selected capture antibodies have been spotted in duplicate on nitrocellulose membranes. Cell lysate samples are diluted and mixed with a cocktail of biotinylated detection antibodies. The sample/antibody mixture is then incubated with the array. Any protein/detection antibody complex present is bound by its cognate immobilized capture antibody on the membrane. Streptavidin-Horseradish Peroxidase and chemiluminescent detection reagents are added, and a signal is produced in proportion to the amount of cytokine bound. Chemiluminescence is detected in the same manner as a Western blot.
