Overview

  • Product name
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to SCF
  • Specificity
    Recent retest of the latest lot of this antibody have shown that this product cannot be longer guaranteed in WB using cell lines and tissue lysates expressing the endogenous protein only. Instead batches have passed in WB using recombinant SCF lysate. All batches are still tested successfully in both ICC and IHC (endogenous protein). (Sept 2017)
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: IHC-P, ICC/IF, WBmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Human, African green monkey
    Predicted to work with: Rat, Sheep, Goat, Horse, Cow, Cat, Dog, Pig, Rhesus monkey
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide conjugated to KLH derived from within residues 50 - 150 of Human SCF.

    (Peptide available as ab73180.)

  • Positive control
    • This antibody gave a positive signal in recombinant SCF protein. ICC/IF: HepG2 cells. IHC: Human normal colon

Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab64677 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 31 kDa).

Target

  • Function
    Ligand for the receptor-type protein-tyrosine kinase KIT. Plays an essential role in the regulation of cell survival and proliferation, hematopoiesis, stem cell maintenance, gametogenesis, mast cell development, migration and function, and in melanogenesis. KITLG/SCF binding can activate several signaling pathways. Promotes phosphorylation of PIK3R1, the regulatory subunit of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, and subsequent activation of the kinase AKT1. KITLG/SCF and KIT also transmit signals via GRB2 and activation of RAS, RAF1 and the MAP kinases MAPK1/ERK2 and/or MAPK3/ERK1. KITLG/SCF and KIT promote activation of STAT family members STAT1, STAT3 and STAT5. KITLG/SCF and KIT promote activation of PLCG1, leading to the production of the cellular signaling molecules diacylglycerol and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate. KITLG/SCF acts synergistically with other cytokines, probably interleukins.
  • Involvement in disease
    Hyperpigmentation with or without hypopigmentation, familial progressive
    Deafness, congenital, unilateral or asymmetric
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the SCF family.
  • Developmental stage
    Acts in the early stages of hematopoiesis.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    A soluble form (sKITLG) is produced by proteolytic processing of isoform 1 in the extracellular domain.
    Found in two differentially glycosylated forms, LMW-SCF and HMW-SCF. LMW-SCF is fully N-glycosylated at Asn-145, partially N-glycosylated at Asn-90, O-glycosylated at Ser-167, Thr-168 and Thr-180, and not glycosylated at Asn-97 or Asn-118. HMW-SCF is N-glycosylated at Asn-118, Asn-90 and Asn-145, O-glycosylated at Ser-167, Thr-168 and Thr-180, and not glycosylated at Asn-97.
    A soluble form exists as a cleavage product of the extracellular domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted; Cell membrane and Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cell membrane. Cell projection, lamellipodium. Cell projection, filopodium.

Anti-SCF antibody images

  • ab64677 stained in HepG2 cells. Cells were fixed with 100% methanol (5min) at room temperature and incubated with PBS containing 10% goat serum, 0.3 M glycine, 1% BSA and 0.1% triton for 1h at room temperature to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab64677 at 5 µg/ml and ab7291 (Mouse monoclonal [DM1A] to alpha Tubulin - Loading Control) at 1/1000 dilution overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibodies were ab150120 (pseudo-colored red) and ab150081 (colored green) used at 1 ug/ml for 1hour at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature

  • IHC image of SCF staining in human normal colon formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab64677, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    Developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 31 kDa
    Observed band size : 55 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)


    Exposure time : 30 seconds
