CD117 (c-Kit) Rat anti-Mouse, Porcine, APC, Clone: 2B8, eBioscience
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen 17117183
Description: The 2B8 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD117, also known as c-Kit receptor, Steel factor receptor, and stem cell factor receptor. A member of the tyrosine kinase receptor family, this 145-kDa molecule is expressed by a majority of hematopoietic progenitor cells characterized in the mouse bone marrow as a small subset of cells positive for Sca-1 and Thy1 (Thy1 low) and negative for lineage markers. The interaction of the mouse c-Kit receptor and steel factor promotes the proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic progenitor cells. CD117 is also expressed by mast cells and plays a role in signaling and activation of these cells. Applications Reported: The 2B8 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: The 2B8 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse bone marrow cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.125 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red 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.
