|Detection of Flt‑3/Flk‑2 in THP‑1 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. THP‑1 human acute monocytic leukemia cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human Flt‑3/Flk‑2 Fluorescein‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB812F, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # IC002F, open histogram).

The Flt-3 (fms-like tyrosine kinase) receptor, also named Flk-2 (fetal liver kinase) and Stk-1(stem cell tyrosine kinase) is a member of the class III subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases that also includes KIT, the receptor for SCF and FMS, the receptor for M-CSF. The extracellular region of these receptors contains five immunoglobulin-like domains and the intracellular region contains a split kinase domain. Human Flt-3 cDNA encodes a 993 amino acid (aa) residue type I membrane protein with a 26 aa residue signal peptide, a 515 aa extracellular domain with 10 potential N-linked glycosylation sites, a 21 aa residue transmembrane domain and a 431 aa residue cytoplasmic domain. Mouse Flt-3 has also been cloned and shown to share 85% amino acid sequence identity with human Flt-3. Flt-3 expression has been detected in various tissues, including placenta, gonads, and tissues of nervous and hematopoietic origin. Among hematopoietic cells, the expression of Flt-3 was found to be restricted to the highly enriched stem/progenitor cell populations. The ligand for Flt-3 (FL) has been identified to be a transmembrane protein with structural homology to M-CSF and SCF. Recombinant soluble Flt-3/Fc chimeric protein has been shown to bind FL with high affinity and is a potent FL antagonist.
