 Function    Receptor tyrosine kinase which plays a central role in the formation and the maintenance of the neuromuscular junction (NMJ), the synapse between the motor neuron and the skeletal muscle.Recruitment of AGRIN by LRP4 to the MUSK signaling complex induces phosphorylation and activation of MUSK, the kinase of the complex. The activation of MUSK in myotubes regulates the formation of NMJs through the regulation of different processes including the specific expression of genes in subsynaptic nuclei, the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton and the clustering of the acetylcholine receptors (AChR) in the postsynaptic membrane. May regulate AChR phosphorylation and clustering through activation of ABL1 and Src family kinases which in turn regulate MUSK. DVL1 and PAK1 that form a ternary complex with MUSK are also important for MUSK-dependent regulation of AChR clustering. May positively regulate Rho family GTPases through FNTA. Mediates the phosphorylation of FNTA which promotes prenylation, recruitment to membranes and activation of RAC1 a regulator of the actin cytoskeleton and of gene expression. Other effectors of the MUSK signaling include DNAJA3 which functions downstream of MUSK. May also play a role within the central nervous system by mediating cholinergic responses, synaptic plasticity and memory formation (By similarity).

 Preparation and Storage    Maintain refrigerated at 2-8C for up to 2 weeks.For long term storage store at -20C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
 Other Notes    Small volumes of anti-MUSK antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

Related Product Information for anti-MUSK antibody

   MuSK activates signaling cascades responsible for many aspects of synapse formation, including the organization of the postsynaptic membrane, synapse-specific transcription, and presynaptic differentiation. MuSK also mediates agrin-induced aggregation of acetylcholine receptors at the mature vertebrate neuromuscular junction and also during synapse formation. It has been shown that a majority of AChR Ab-seronegative myasthenia gravis patients possess serum autoantibodies against MuSK.

 NCBI Summary for MUSK    This gene encodes a muscle-specific tyrosine kinase receptor. The encoded protein may play a role in clustering of the acetylcholine receptor in the postsynaptic neuromuscular junction. Mutations in this gene have been associated with congenital myasthenic syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]
Section Bar
 UniProt Comments for MUSK    MUSK: a receptor tyrosine kinase that is essential for the establishment and maintenance of the neuromuscular junction (NMJ). Its activation by agrin, a neuronally derived heparan-sulfate proteoglycan, and the agrin receptor (LRP4), leads to clustering of acetylcholine receptors on the postsynaptic side of the NMJ. Its activation by agrin requires Dok7, which interacts with the cytoplasmic portion of MuSK and activates its tyrosine kinase activity.
