HRP-2053 Recombinant Human Kinase MERTK Extracellular Domain $300

Recombinant Human Kinase MERTK Extracellular Domain

Product Name: Recombinant Human Kinase MERTK Extracellular Domain
Catalog #:  HRP-2053
Manufacture:  LD Biopharma, Inc.

Human Tyrosine-protein kinase Mer (MERTK) 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. MERTK transduces signals from the extracellular matrix into the cytoplasm by binding to several ligands including LGALS3, TUB, TULP1 or GAS6. It regulates many physiological processes including cell survival, migration, differentiation, and phagocytosis of apoptotic cells (efferocytosis). Ligand binding at the cell surface induces auto-phosphorylation of MERTK on its intracellular domain that provides docking sites for downstream signaling molecules. Following activation by ligand, MERTK interacts with GRB2 or PLCG2 and induces phosphorylation of MAPK1, MAPK2, FAK/PTK2 or RAC1. 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. It plays also 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.

Full-length extracellular domain of human kinase MERTK cDNA ( 21 – 505 aa ) was constructed with codon optimization gene synthesis and expressed with a human Alpha Fetal protein N-terminal-His-TEV cleavage site Tag (217aa) fusion at FAP N-terminal. This protein was expressed in E. coli as inclusion bodies. The final product was refolded using our unique “temperature shift inclusion body refolding” technology and chromatographically purified.
