Applications Key: IF-IC=Immunofluorescence (Immunocytochemistry), F=Flow Cytometry
Specificity / Sensitivity
c-Kit (Ab81) Mouse mAb detects endogenous levels of total c-Kit protein. It does not cross-react with other receptor tyrosine kinase family members.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with recombinant proteins containing the cytoplasmic domain of human c-Kit. The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 488 under optimal conditions with an F/P ratio of 2-6.
Flow cytometric analysis of Jurkat (blue) and H526 (green) cells using c-Kit (Ab81) Mouse mAb (Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate).
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to Alexa Fluor ® 488 fluorescent dye and tested in-house for direct flow cytometry and immunofluorescent analysis in human cells.
c-Kit is a member of the subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases that includes PDGF, CSF-1, and FLT3/flk-2 receptors (1,2). It plays a critical role in activation and growth in a number of cell types including hematopoietic stem cells, mast cells, melanocytes, and germ cells (3). Upon binding with its stem cell factor (SCF) ligand, c-Kit undergoes dimerization/oligomerization and autophosphorylation. Activation of c-Kit results in the recruitment and tyrosine phosphorylation of downstream SH2-containing signaling components including PLCγ, the p85 subunit of PI3 kinase, SHP2, and CrkL (4). Molecular lesions that impair the kinase activity of c-Kit are associated with a variety of developmental disorders (5), and mutations that constitutively activate c-Kit can lead to pathogenesis of mastocytosis and gastrointestinal stromal tumors (6). Tyr719 is located in the kinase insert region of the catalytic domain. c-Kit phosphorylated at Tyr719 binds to the p85 subunit of PI3 kinase in vitro and in vivo (7).
