Rat TrkA ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Rat TrkA ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of rat TRKA in cell culture supernates, cell lysates and tissue homogenates.
Tropomyosin receptor kinase A(TrkA) are efficacious in attenuating skeletal pain.1 TrkA mutants were able to activate signaling cascades and were even more efficient in promoting neurite outgrowth than the wild-type receptor.2 TrkA is part of a sub-family of protein kinases which includes TrkB and TrkC. Also, there are other neurotrophic factors structurally related to NGF: BDNF(for Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor), NT-3(for Neurotrophin-3) and NT-4(for Neurotrophin-4). While TrkA mediates the effects of NGF, TrkB is bound and activated by BDNF, NT-4, and NT-3. Further, TrkC binds and is activated by NT-3.3 TrkA receptor was found in keratoconus-affected corneas, along with an increased level of repressor isoform of Sp3 transcription factor.4 The standard product used in this kit is extracellular part(A33-P418) of recombinant rat TRKA, consisting of 386 amino acids with the molecular weight of 69KDa.
