Human KIT/SCFR ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human KIT/SCFR ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human KIT in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
SCFR(Mast/stem cell growth factor receptor), also known as proto-oncogene c-Kit or tyrosine-protein kinase Kit or CD117, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the KIT gene. KIT was first described as the cellular homolog of the feline sarcoma viral oncogene v-kit. The KIT gene is mapped on 4q12. Kit was expressed on the surface of germ cells up to the pachytene stage. Signaling from the KIT receptor tyrosine kinase is essential for primordial germ cell growth both in vivo and in vitro. Determination of the KIT effectors acting in primordial germ cells has been hampered by the lack of effective methods to manipulate easily gene expression in these cells.
