Staining of C57Bl/6 bone marrow cells with Anti-Mouse Ly-6A/E (Sca-1) PE (cat. 12-5981) and 0.03 ug...View More
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.
