Alternative names of antibody target:
stem cell factor, Mast cell growth factor, MGF, C-kit ligand
Stem Cell Factor (SCF) is a hematopoietic growth factor that exerts its activity at the early stages of hematopoiesis. SCF stimulates the proliferation of myeloid, erythroid, and lymphoid progenitors in bone marrow cultures. Rat SCF is an 18.4 kDa protein containing 165 amino acid residues.
This antibody reacts with:
E. coli-expressed recombinant rat SCF
Formulation of this antibody:
30 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-1µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually.
