Mouse TrkB ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse TrkB ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse TrkB in cell culture supernates, cell lysates and tissue homogenates.
TrkB receptor also known as TrkB tyrosine kinase or BDNF/NT-3 growth factors receptor or neurotrophic tyrosine kinase, receptor, type 2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NTRK2 gene.1 TrkB is the high affinity catalytic receptor for several "neurotrophins", which are small protein growth factors that induce the survival and differentiation of distinct cell populations. The TrkB receptor is part of the large family of receptor tyrosine kinases. A "tyrosine kinase" is an enzyme which is capable of adding a phosphate group to certain tyrosines on target proteins, or "substrates".Soppet et al. 2 demonstrated that the gp145 gene product of the TRKB gene is rapidly phosphorylated on tyrosine residues upon exposure to BDNF and NTF3. The standard product used in this kit is recombinant TrkB, a 49.5KDa glycoprotein, C32H439.
