Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab92950 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 105 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 97 kDa).|
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.
modificationsUbiquitinated by PDZRN3. Ubiquitination promotes endocytosis and lysosomal degradation.

Predicted band size: 97 kDa
Observed band size: 105 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Additional bands at: 65 kDa, 80 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
Exposure time: 2 minutes
MUSK protein sequence contains two potential glycosylation sites (SwissProt Data), which may explain the migration of the band at a higher molecular weight than predicted.
