CD117 (c-Kit), APC-eFluor 780, clone: ACK2, eBioscience™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS47117282
c-Kit, also known as CD117 and stem cell factor receptor, is a 145kDa transmembrane tyrosine kinase encoded by the c-Kit proto-oncogene. c-Kit acts to regulate a variety of biological responses including cell proliferation, apoptosis, chemotaxis and adhesion. Ligand binding to the extracellular domain leads to autophosphorylation on several tyrosine residues within the cytoplasmic domain, and activation. c-Kit mutations correlate with tumor growth and progression in a variety of cancers including mast cell disease, gastrointestinal stromal tumor, acute myeloid leukemia, Ewing sarcoma, and lung cancer. Phosphorylation at tyrosine 703 of c-Kit allows binding of Grb2 and activation of the Ras-Raf-ERK1&2 signaling pathway.Description: The ACK2 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD117, also known as c-Kit receptor, Steel factor receptor and stem cell factor receptor. A member of the tyrosine kinase receptor family, this 145kDa molecule is expressed by a majority of hematopoietic progenitor cells characterized in the mouse bone marrow as a small subset of cells positive for Sca-1 and Thy1 (Thy1^lo) and negative for lineage markers. The interaction of the mouse c-kit receptor and steel factor promotes the proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic progenitor cells. CD117 is also expressed by mast cells and plays a role in signaling and activation of these cells. ACK2 has been reported to be a blocking antibody.Applications Reported: This ACK2 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This ACK2 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse bone marrow cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.125 μg per test. A test is defined as the amount (μg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 μL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.APC-eFluor™ emits at 780 nm and is excited with the Red laser (633 nm). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochome.Light sensitivity: This tandem is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light. Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 μL cell sample + 100 μL IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically.Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 780 nm; Laser: Red Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
