CD117 (c-Kit) Mouse anti-Human, PE, Clone: YB5.B8, eBioscience
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen 12117941
Description: The YB5.B8 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD117, also known as c-Kit , Steel factor receptor and stem cell factor receptor. A member of the tyrosine kinase receptor family, this 145 kDa molecule is expressed by hematopoietic progenitor cell subsets and mast cells. The interaction of c-Kit and Steel factor promotes proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic progenitor cells and mast cell differentiation. CD117 is also expressed by melanocytes and plays a role in signaling and activation of these cells. When interested in staining HSCs from peripheral blood, we recommend the use of clone 104D2. Please refer to cat. 17-1178. Applications Reported: YB5.B8 has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: The YB5.B8 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of the TF-1 cell line, a human erythroleukemia cell line. This can be used at 5 µL (0.25 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 578 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.c-Kit, also known as CD117 and stem cell factor receptor, is a 145 kDa transmembrane tyrosine kinase encoded by the c-Kit proto-oncogene. c-Kit acts to regulate a variety of biological responses including cell proliferation, apoptosis, chemotaxis and adhesion. Ligand binding to the extracellular domain leads to autophosphorylation on several tyrosine residues within the cytoplasmic domain, and activation. c-Kit mutations correlate with tumor growth and progression in a variety of cancers including mast cell disease, gastrointestinal stromal tumor, acute myeloid leukemia, Ewing sarcoma, and lung cancer. Phosphorylation at tyrosine 703 of c-Kit allows binding of Grb2 and activation of the Ras-Raf-ERK1&2 signaling pathway.
