For maximum recovery please spin prior to use. Unless noted below, aliquots of the 5 µg, 10 µg and 20 µg sizes of kinase are not recommended as materials can be used in original packaging until exhausted. For larger sizes, the number of freeze/thaws may be reduced by preparing aliquots, aliquots below 20 µL are not recommended. Please never store a kinase diluted. If properly stored at -80C, this product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of purchase.

KIT (c-KIT) is a proto-oncogene and a type 3 transmembrane receptor for MGF (mast cell growth factor, also known as stem cell factor). KIT was first identified as the cellular homolog of the feline sarcoma viral oncogene v-kit. KIT together with its ligand regulates growth and activation of a variety of hemopoietic and non-hemopoietic cells. Mutations in KIT are associated with gastrointestinal stromal tumors, mast cell disease, acute myelogenous leukemia, and piebaldism. Recently, deregulation of the KIT receptor TK by the prevalent activation loop mutation D816V has served as a focal point in therapeutic strategies aimed at curbing neoplastic mast cell growth. c-Kit is expressed in hematopoietic stem cells, germ cells, mast cells and gastrointestinal tract cajal cells. Upon binding of its ligand stem cell factor (SCF), c-kit dimerizes, resulting in receptor activation and autophosphorylation of various tyrosine residues including tyrosine 703 located on the cytoplasmic domain of the receptor. This modification allows docking of Grb2 and activation of the Ras/ERK signaling pathway. SCF/c-kit can activate multiple downstream signaling pathways including PI3K, PLC-gamma and JAK/STAT. c-kit receptor activation is essential for hematopoiesis, stem cell maintenance and gametogenesis.
