LTK assay

Leukocyte receptor tyrosine kinase

Synonyms: TYK1

Family: TK

LTK a receptor tyrosine kinase that has been implicated in autoimmunity, neuronal development, and cancer1. LTK is expressed in pre-B lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, and other hematopoietic cells, as well as brain and placenta, and shares significant homology with  anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)2.

LTK kinase assay is run on mobility shift microfluidics platform (Caliper), which provides best in industry quality of data. We routinely run services associated with this kinase including: screening, profiling, dose-response studies and kinetic measurements. Please contact us for more information.
