Swine SCF Recombinant Protein

SCF, often known as Kit Ligand, KITL or KITLG, is involved in pathways that control the regulation of cell survival, migration and proliferation, hematopoiesis, stem cell maintenance, gametogenesis, mast cell development, and melanogenesis. SCF binding to the receptor-type protein-tyrosine kinase KIT, induces a cell signaling pathway that activates several other cell signaling pathways, including PIK3R1/AKT1, GRB2, RAS, RAF1, MAPK1/ERK2, MAPK3/ERK1, and STAT signaling events. The effects of SCF on these secondary pathways further allow it to play a role in many or the major cellular processes. The SCF, of most vertebrates, has a soluble form as well as the membrane bound type I receptor form. Mutations in the SCF pathway may result in a broad range of abnormalities including anemia, and sterility. SCF and KIT interaction has been shown to promote the growth of cancer cells and organoids in culture, and xenograft tumors in mice. SCF is being utilized in many animal model systems, from metastasis research in breast tumor-bearing arthritic mice to the genetic linkage to de-pigmentation in pigs. Interestingly, a second SCF pathway was retained in zebrafish, after a whole genome duplication, and is now undergoing divergent evolution.

Kingfisher Biotech's Swine SCF recombinant protein was produced in yeast and therefore does not have endotoxin, is naturally folded, and post-translationally modified. It has a predicted molecular weight of 18.7 kDa.

Kingfisher Biotech, Inc. is committed to accelerating basic veterinary research and human disease research done in animal models by developing and commercializing research reagents specific for a variety of species, including bovine, canine, caprine, chicken, dolphin, equine, feline, guinea pig, hamster, human, mouse, ovine, rabbit, rat, swine, and turkey. We will continue to add species as our customer request specific reagents for their research. Currently, we offer over 1200 recombinant proteins, polyclonal antibodies, monoclonal antibodies and ELISA kits for animal health and animal model research. Our products are primarily cytokines, chemokines, interferons, and growth factors. Our product development queue is filled mainly by customer requests. If there is a product that you are looking for and can't find, please send us an email.
