The YB5.B8 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD117, also known as c-Kit, Steel factor receptor and stem cell factor receptor. A member of the tyrosine kinase receptor family, this 145kDa molecule is expressed by hematopoietic progenitor cell subsets and mast cells. The interaction of c-Kit and Steel factor promotes proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic progenitor cells and mast cell differentiation. CD117 is also expressed by melanocytes and plays a role in signaling and activation of these cells.

When interested in staining HSCs from peripheral blood, we recommend the use of clone 104D2. Please refer to cat. 17-1178.
