Macrophage stimulating 1 receptor (c-met-related tyrosine kinase), encoded by the MST1R gene, is a cell-surface receptor that binds macrophage-stimulating protein (MSP). It was previously known as RON. The precursor protein is cleaved to generate the mature form, a heterodimer of disulfide-linked alpha and beta subunits. The beta subunit of MST1R/RON is phosphorylated at tyrosine residues upon activation by MSP. MST1R/RON signaling activates the wound healing response by promoting epithelial cell migration, proliferation, and survival at the wound site. MST1R/RON is also known as CDw136, protein-tyrosine kinase 8 (PTK8), c-met-related tyrosine kinase, macrophage-stimulating protein receptor, MSP receptor, p185-Ron, CD136, MST1R variant RON30, MST1R variant RON62, and RON variant E2E3.
This product is an affinity-purified IgG antibody that recognizes human MST1R/RON protein. The antibody was raised in rabbit using a synthetic peptide and can be used for Western blot (WB) detection or immunoprecipitation (IP) of human MST1R/RON protein.
