Mouse MER/MERTK ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse MER/MERTK ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse MER in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, tissue homogenates and serum.
Proto-oncogene tyrosine-protein kinase MER, also called MERTK is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the MERTK gene. This gene is a member of the MER/AXL/TYRO3 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. This gene is mapped to 2q13. MERTK signaling plays a role in various processes such as macrophage clearance of apoptotic cells, platelet aggregation, cytoskeleton reorganization and engulfment. Functions in the retinal pigment epithelium(RPE) as a regulator of rod outer segments fragments phagocytosis. This gene also plays an important role in inhibition of Toll-like receptors(TLRs)-mediated innate immune response by activating STAT1, which selectively induces production of suppressors of cytokine signaling SOCS1 and SOCS3.
