MERTK (c-MER) is a member of the TYRO3/AXL/MER (TAM) receptor kinase family which encodes a transmembrane protein with two fibronectin type-III domains, two Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains, and one tyrosine kinase domain. Cytokine-dependent activation of TAM signaling diverts a proinflammatory pathway to provide an intrinsic feedback inhibitor of both TLR- and cytokine-driven immune responses. MERTK is essential regulators of mammalian spermatogenesis. Mutations in MERTK gene have been associated with disruption of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) phagocytosis pathway and onset of autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa (RP). Recombinant human MERTK A708S (578-872) was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag.
