Stem Cell Factor

A hematopoietic growth factor and the ligand of the cell surface c-kit protein (PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEINS C-KIT). It is expressed during embryogenesis and is a growth factor for a number of cell types including the MAST CELLS and the MELANOCYTES in addition to the HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS.
Also Known As:
kit Ligand; c kit Ligand; Mast Cell Growth Factor; Steel Factor; c-kit Ligand
