Technical Data
Kit-a, ID (Mast/Stem Cell Growth Factor Receptor Kita, SCFR, Tyrosine-protein Kinase Kit, Kita, Kit, Sparse)
Kit receptor a (kit-a) is a receptor tyrosine kinase expressed by embryonic neural crest-derived melanocytes and their precursors who are dependent on kit's function of migration, survival, along with some melanocyte differentiation. The gene is expressed in zebrafish similarly to its mouse ortholog. However, contrary to mouse, Zf kit-a exhibits expression in primordial germ cells. Furthermore, while Zf kit-a is not required for blood development, it is expressed in a primitive hematopoiesis location.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.
