  • Function

    This is probably a cell growth or differentiation factor receptor with a tyrosine-protein kinase activity.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in brain. Expression is increased in primary gliomas.
  • Involvement in disease

    Note=A chromosomal aberration involving ROS1 is found in a glioblastoma multiforme sample. An intra-chromosomal deletion del(6)(q21q21) is responsible for the formation of GOPC-ROS1 chimeric protein which has a constitutive receptor tyrosine kinase activity.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. Insulin receptor subfamily.
    Contains 9 fibronectin type-III domains.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.

  • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human lung carcinoma tissue sections labeling ROS1 with Purified  ab189925 at 1:300 dilution (5.23 μg/ml). Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval using EDTA Buffer, pH9.0. Tissue was counterstained with hematoxylin. ImmunoHistoProbe one step HRP Polymer (ready to use) secondary antibody was used at 1:0 dilution. PBS instead of the primary antibody was used as the negative control.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded Human lung carcinoma tissue labeling ROS1 with unpurified ab189925 at 1/250 dilution followed by prediluted HRP Polymer for Rabbit IgG. Counter stained with hematoxylin. (Inset: negative control).

    Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9.0 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
