Target

  • FunctionIn case of filovirus infection, seems to function as a cell entry factor.
  • Tissue specificityNot expressed in normal B- and T-lymphocytes but is expressed in numerous neoplastic B- and T-cell lines.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in MERTK are the cause of retinitis pigmentosa type 38 (RP38) [MIM:613862]. RP38 is a retinal dystrophy belonging to the group of pigmentary retinopathies. Retinitis pigmentosa is characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination and primary loss of rod photoreceptor cells followed by secondary loss of cone photoreceptors. Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field. As their condition progresses, they lose their far peripheral visual field and eventually central vision as well.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. AXL/UFO subfamily.
    Contains 2 fibronectin type-III domains.
    Contains 2 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.

    Secondary
    Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97080) at 1/5000 dilution
    Developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 110 kDa
    Observed band size : 145 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 60 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 8 minutes
    MERTK protein contains a number of potential glycosylation sites (SwissProt), which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted.
  • ICC/IF image of ab95925 stained MEF1 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab95925 at 10µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
