FunctionTyrosine-protein kinase receptor whose role is not yet clear.
Tissue specificityExpressed strongly in human heart, lung and kidney, but weakly in the CNS. Isoform Short is strongly expressed in fetal and adult CNS and in a variety of human cancers, including those originating from CNS or PNS neuroectoderm.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. ROR subfamily. Contains 1 FZ (frizzled) domain. Contains 1 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain. Contains 1 kringle domain. Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
Developmental stageExpressed at high levels during early embryonic development. The expression levels drop strongly around day 16 and there are only very low levels in adult tissues.
Overlay histogram showing A549 cells stained with ab91187 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab91187, 2µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.
Please note that Abcam do not have any data for use of this antibody on non-fixed cells. We welcome any customer feedback.
