  • General notes

    The detection limit in immunoblotting for recombinant human HGF R is approximately 5 ng/lane under non-reducing and reducing conditions. Both the alpha and beta chains of HGF R are detected by this antibody under reducing conditions. The detection limit in ELISA for recombinant human HGF R is approximately 0.16 ng/well.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab10728 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Neutralising Use a concentration of 0.5 - 2 µg/ml. ab10728 has the ability to neutralize receptor-ligand interaction. Approximately 0.5-2 mg/mL of the antibody will block 50% of the binding of recombinant human HGF (5 ng/mL) to immobilized recombinant human HGF R/Fc Chimera (100 mL of a 1 mg/mL solution coated in each well) in an ELISA. 10 mg/mL of the antibody will block 90% of binding.
ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 129 kDa.


  • Function
    Receptor for hepatocyte growth factor and scatter factor. Has a tyrosine-protein kinase activity. Functions in cell proliferation, scattering, morphogenesis and survival.
  • Involvement in disease
    Note=Activation of MET after rearrangement with the TPR gene produces an oncogenic protein.
    Note=Defects in MET may be associated with gastric cancer.
    Defects in MET are a cause of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) [MIM:114550].
    Defects in MET are a cause of renal cell carcinoma papillary (RCCP) [MIM:605074]. It is a subtype of renal cell carcinoma tending to show a tubulo-papillary architecture formed by numerous, irregular, finger-like projections of connective tissue. Renal cell carcinoma is a heterogeneous group of sporadic or hereditary carcinoma derived from cells of the proximal renal tubular epithelium. It is subclassified into common renal cell carcinoma (clear cell, non-papillary carcinoma), papillary renal cell carcinoma, chromophobe renal cell carcinoma, collecting duct carcinoma with medullary carcinoma of the kidney, and unclassified renal cell carcinoma.
    Note=A common allele in the promoter region of the MET shows genetic association with susceptibility to autism in some families. Functional assays indicate a decrease in MET promoter activity and altered binding of specific transcription factor complexes.
    Note=MET activating mutations may be involved in the development of a highly malignant, metastatic syndrome known as cancer of unknown primary origin (CUP) or primary occult malignancy. Systemic neoplastic spread is generally a late event in cancer progression. However, in some instances, distant dissemination arises at a very early stage, so that metastases reach clinical relevance before primary lesions. Sometimes, the primary lesions cannot be identified in spite of the progresses in the diagnosis of malignancies.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family.
    Contains 3 IPT/TIG domains.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
    Contains 1 Sema domain.
  • Domain
    The kinase domain is involved in SPSB1 binding.

  • ab10728 staining mouse muscle cells by ICC/IF.  Cells were PFA fixed and permeabilized in 0.5% Triton prior to blocking with 1% serum for 30 minutes at 25°C.  The primary antibody was diluted 1/50 and incubated with the sample for 1 hour at 25°C.  An Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated chicken anti-goat antibody was used as the secondary.
