|Application ||WB, IF, FC, E|
|Other Accession||Q29030, Q28132, Q95MD2|
|Predicted||Bovine, Horse, Pig|
|Calculated MW||30899 Da|
|Antigen Region||244-273 aa|
|Other Names||Kit ligand, Mast cell growth factor, MGF, Stem cell factor, SCF, c-Kit ligand, Soluble KIT ligand, sKITLG, KITLG, MGF, SCF|
|Target/Specificity||This SCF (KITLG) antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 244-273 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human SCF (KITLG).|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||SCF (KITLG) Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Ligand for the receptor-type protein-tyrosine kinase KIT. Plays an essential role in the regulation of cell survival and proliferation, hematopoiesis, stem cell maintenance, gametogenesis, mast cell development, migration and function, and in melanogenesis. KITLG/SCF binding can activate several signaling pathways. Promotes phosphorylation of PIK3R1, the regulatory subunit of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, and subsequent activation of the kinase AKT1. KITLG/SCF and KIT also transmit signals via GRB2 and activation of RAS, RAF1 and the MAP kinases MAPK1/ERK2 and/or MAPK3/ERK1. KITLG/SCF and KIT promote activation of STAT family members STAT1, STAT3 and STAT5. KITLG/SCF and KIT promote activation of PLCG1, leading to the production of the cellular signaling molecules diacylglycerol and inositol 1,4,5- trisphosphate. KITLG/SCF acts synergistically with other cytokines, probably interleukins.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Soluble KIT ligand: Secreted.|

KITLG is the ligand of the tyrosine-kinase receptor encoded by the KIT locus. This ligand is a pleiotropic factor that acts in utero in germ cell and neural cell development, and hematopoiesis, all believed to reflect a role in cell migration. In adults, it functions pleiotropically, while mostly noted for its continued requirement in hematopoiesis.
