Catalog #: 93-1056E3CP5L


Biological Information
Background Information:
The PathHunter® OSMR/IL6ST Dimerization eXpress kit provides an easy-to-use cell based assay to study drug candidates (small molecules or biologics) targeting receptor-receptor interaction. This kit assesses ligand (e.g. oncostatin M) induced dimerization of OSMR/IL6ST receptors. This product uses EFC technology. The cells included overexpress IL6ST target protein fused to PK alongside OSMR target protein fused to EA. Upon ligand-induced dimerization of OSMR/IL6ST, detectable EFC signal is produced. eXpress kits are a convenient, ready-to-use format which contains all materials needed to run the assay, including single-use vials of cryopreserved cells, cell plating media, detection reagent, and assay plates.
