RON (CD136) Mouse anti-Human, PE, Clone: Zt/g4, BD
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 565692
The Zt/g4 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to RON, which is also known as CD136, Macrophage-stimulating protein receptor (MSP-Receptor, MSP-R), Macrophage stimulating 1 receptor (c-met-related tyrosine kinase) (MST1R), or Protein-tyrosine kinase 8 (PTK8). RON is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the receptor tyrosine kinase family. It is expressed on cells as a disulfide-linked heterodimer. RON is expressed on macrophages, keratinocytes, erythroblasts and epithelial cells from the skin, lung, kidney, liver, intestine, colon, and bone marrow. RON reportedly regulates many physiological processes including the survival, migration, differentiation, and effector functions of a variety of cell types including epithelial cells, and macrophages. RON binds Macrophage stimulating protein (MSP). Overexpression of RON may contribute to the malignant transformation of epithelial cells.
