SCF (human):Fc (human) (rec.) (non-lytic)
|Synonyms||Stem Cell Factor; c-Kit Ligand; Kit Ligand; Mast Cell Grow Factor; MGF|
The extracellular domain of human SCF (aa 26-187) is fused to the N-terminus of the Fc region of a mutant human IgG1.
Shows the biological function of the SCF moiety and exerts a prolonged circulating half-life caused by the modified Fc domain.
|Endotoxin Content||<0.06EU/μg protein (LAL test; Lonza).|
|Reconstitution||Reconstitute at 100μg/ml in sterile PBS.|
|Formulation||Lyophilized from 0.2μm-filtered solution in PBS.|
|Protein Negative Control|
|Other Product Data||
Non-lytic: Acts as a long lasting fusion protein which only binds to the receptor. Mutations to the complement (C1q) and FcgR I binding sites of the IgGs Fc fragment render the fusion proteins incapable of antibody directed cytotoxicity (ADCC) and complement directed cytotoxicity (CDC).

|Product Specification Sheet|
Stem cell factor (SCF), also known as cKit ligand (KL), mast cell growth factor (MGF), and steel factor (SLF), is a widely expressed 28-40 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It promotes the survival, differentiation, and mobilization of multiple cell types including myeloid, erythroid, megakaryocytic, lymphoid, germ cell, and melanocyte progenitors. SCF is a primary growth and activation factor for mast cells and eosinophils. Noncovalent dimers of transmembrane or soluble SCF interact with the receptor tyrosine kinase SCF R/cKit to trigger receptor dimerization and signaling. SCF assists in the recovery of cardiac function following myocardial infarction by increasing the number of cardiomyocytes and vascular channels.
