Detection of CD117/c-kit in Mouse Splenoctyes by Flow Cytometry. Mouse splenocytes gated on hematopoietic lineage negative cells were stained with Rat Anti-Mouse CD117/c-kit APC‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB1356A) and Rat Anti-Mouse Sca‑1/Ly6 PE‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB1226P). Quadrant markers were set based on control antibody staining (Catalog # IC006A). View our protocol for Staining Membrane-associated Proteins.

SCF R is also known as the c-kit proto-oncogene protein and as CD117. Together with its ligand, stem cell factor (also called c-kit ligand or mast cell growth factor), SCF R plays an essential role in gametogenesis, melanogenesis, and hematopoiesis. SCF R is expressed in hematopoietic progenitor cells, normal B and T lymphocyte progenitors, mast cells, germ cells, melanocytes, neurons, glial cells, placenta, kidney, lung, and gut. In addition, SCF R expression has also been reported in several human tumor cell lines (1,2).
