|Describtion||This assay employs the quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay technique for the quantitative detection of rat SCF. The Rat SCF ELISA is for research use only. Not for diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Stem Cell Factor (SCF) is a cytokine that binds to the c-Kit receptor. SCF can exist both as a transmembrane protein and a soluble protein. SCF promotes mast cell adhesion, migration, proliferation, and survival. It also promotes the release of histamine and tryptase, which are involved in the allergic response. SCF acts in a synergistic manner with various growth factors, such as IL-3, IL-6, IL-11, GM-CSF, G-CSF, and Epo to induce myeloid and erythroid lineage colony formation. This cytokine plays an important role in hematopoiesis (formation of blood cells), spermatogenesis, and melanogenesis.
Cardiomyocyte-specific overexpression of transmembrane SCF promotes stem cell migration and improves cardiac function and animal survival after myocardial infarction. Mutations in this gene in dogs suggest it is a candidate skin cancer susceptibility gene.
