General Description of CD117 / c-Kit.
The ACK2 antibody is specific for CD117, also called c-Kit, a 145 kDa cytokine receptor important in the development of hematopoietic stem cells, in oogenesis, and for functional activity of immune cells such as NK and mast cells. c-Kit binds to a ligand known as stem cell factor (SCF), or alternatively as mast cell growth factor. Ligand binding promotes the activation (dimerization) and subsequent tyrosine kinase activity of the c-Kit receptor and triggers key survival, expansion and maturation signals during hematopoietic progenitor cell development. Conversely, shedding of extracellular domain of c-Kit receptor is reported to induce inactivation or apoptosis within these cells. The survival signaling activity of c-Kit confers a proto-oncogenic attribute to the receptor, as overexpression or mutations in this protein are associated with tumor development.The ACK2 antibody is widely utilized as a marker to identify hematopoietic progenitors, and to neutralize receptor-ligand binding in vitro and in vivo (use format appropriate for functional assays). In addition, the antibody is reported to be cross-reactive with rat c-Kit and is extensively published for use in this species.

CD117 / c-Kit Previously Observed Antibody Staining Patterns

Observed Subcellular, Organelle Specific Staining Data:

Staining with anti-CD117 / c-Kit antibody reveals CD117 / c-Kit expression is expected to be primarily localized to the plasma membrane.

Observed Antibody Staining Data By Tissue Type:

Variations in CD117 / c-Kit antibody staining intensity in immunohistochemistry on tissue sections are present across different anatomical locations. Low, but measureable presence of CD117 / c-Kit could be seen inepidermal cells in the skin. We were unable to detect CD117 / c-Kit in other tissues. Disease states, inflammation, and other physiological changes can have a substantial impact on antibody staining patterns. These measurements were all taken in tissues deemed normal or from patients without known disease.

Observed Antibody Staining Data By Tissue Disease Status:

Tissues from cancer patients, for instance, have their own distinct pattern of CD117 / c-Kit expression as measured by anti-CD117 / c-Kit antibody immunohistochemical staining. The average level of expression by tumor is summarized in the table below. The variability row represents patient to patient variability in IHC staining.
