Background: Mer

Tyrosine-protein Kinase Mer, also known as c-Mer and MerTK, is a member of the receptor tyrosine kinase subfamily TAM (Tyro3, Axl, and Mer). Mature mouse Mer consists of 478 aa extracellular domain, 21 aa transmembrane domain, and 475 aa cytoplasmic domain. Within the extracellular domain, mouse Mer shares 77.1% and 90.4% homology with human and rat Mer, respectively. Similar to Axl and Tyro3, the extracelluar domain of Mer contains two Ig-like motifs and two fibronectin type III motifs. Mer is not expressed in normal B- and T-cells but expressed in neoplastic B- and T-cell lines (1-2).  It is also show higher expression in immunosuppressive M2‑like macrophages (3).  Mer is known to bind Gas6, Protein S, Tubby, Tubby-like protein 1 (Tulp1), and Galectin-3 (4-7). Upon binding ligands via the Ig-like motif, Mer is dimerized to trans-autophosphorylate the kinase domain to induce downstream signaling. It has been shown that Mer signaling in macrophages induces M2 polarization, which promote tumor growth, metastasis and evasion of anti-tumor immunity in tumor microenviroment (8). Inhibition of Mer, especially on leukocytes and macrophages, is an effective anti-cancer therapy (9).
