The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 97 kDa. for 2 hours. This antibody has been tested in Western blot against the recombinant peptide used as an immunogen. We have no data on detection of endogenous protein.
Use at an assay dependent dilution.
FunctionReceptor tyrosine kinase that is a key mediator of agrin's action and is involved in neuromuscular junction (NMJ) organization.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in MUSK is a cause of congenital myasthenic syndrome with acetylcholine receptor deficiency (CMS-ACHRD) [MIM:608931]. A post-synaptic congenital myasthenic syndrome. Mutations underlying AChR deficiency cause a 'loss of function' and show recessive inheritance. Note=MUSK mutations lead to decreased agrin-dependent AChR aggregation, a critical step in the formation of the neuromuscular junction.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. Contains 1 FZ (frizzled) domain. Contains 3 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains. Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
Post-translational modificationsUbiquitinated by PDZRN3. Ubiquitination promotes endocytosis and lysosomal degradation.
