  • Target

    • Relevance

      MER is a member of the MER/AXL/SKY receptor kinase family and encodes a transmembrane protein with two fibronectin type-III domains, two Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains, and one tyrosine kinase domain. Mutations in this gene have been associated with disruption of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) phagocytosis pathway and onset of autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa (RP). SKY may be involved in cell adhesion processes, particularly in the central nervous system. In case of filovirus infection, seems to function as a cell entry factor.

    • All lanes : Anti-MER + SKY antibody (ab79223) at 1/500 dilution

      Lane 1 : 3T3 cell extract treated
      with EGF (200ng/ml, 5mins)
      Lane 2 : 3T3 cell extract treated

      Predicted band size: 110 , 97 kDa
      Observed band size: 97 kDa
      why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
      Additional bands at: 120 kDa, 150 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
