Alternative Names SCF, Kit ligand, c-Kit Ligand, Mast cell growth factor, MGF
Description SCF is a stromal cell-derived cytokine synthesized by fibroblasts and other cell types. SCF promotes proliferation and early differentiation of cells at the level of multipotent stem cells. It has been suggested that SCF is essential for optimal production of various hematopoietic lineages, mainly because of its ability to prevent apoptosis when co-stimulated with other cytokines. The receptor for SCF, designated SCFR (CD117) is the oncogene designated as KIT. The biological activities of SCF are considerably synergised by colony stimulating factors; GM-CSF and G-CSF, and by IL7, EPO and some other growth and differentiation factors. In combination with IL7, SCF stimulates the proliferation of pre-B cells. SCF is also a potent chemoattractant for cells expressing the kit receptor. Recombinant Human SCF is a glycosylated, monomeric protein (contains intra-chain disulfide bonds) that runs at approximately 25 kDa in a reducing SDS-PAGE.
Gene Symbol KITLG
Gene ID 4254
Accession No. P21583
Source CHO cells
Appearance Lyophilized Powder
Molecular Weight 18.0 kDa
Endotoxin Level <1.0 EU/μg of recombinant protein as determined by the LAL method
Purity >95% as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bioactivity The ED(50) as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of human TF-1 cells was found to be ≤ 2.0 ng/mL
Formulation Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS pH 7.0
Reconstitution A quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers.
Storage The lyophilized protein is stable for at least one year from date of receipt at -70°C. Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8°C for one month, or at -20°C for six months, with a carrier protein without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Usage For research use only. Not for diagnostic or therapeutic use.

How are endotoxin levels measured?
1. For estimating the endotoxin levels; we use the LAL (Limulus Amebocyte Lysate) method: The lysate from horseshoe crab amebocytes clots in the presence of very low endotoxin. This reaction is the basis of the Limulus amebocyte lysate (LAL) assay which was approved by the FDA in 1970.

· Endotoxin is generally measured in Endotoxin Units per milliliter (EU/mL).

· For recombinant proteins: EU is reported per microgram of protein.

· One EU = 0.1-0.2 ng endotoxin/µg of protein.

· At abm, we do the LAL chromogenic assays that can detect down to 0.01 EU/ml.
With regard to the BSA levels in some Growth Factors and Cytokines, can you please provide an explanation as to why they are so high?
The amount of BSA, as part of the formulation of a protein, can vary considerably depending on how much BSA was deemed optimum/necessary for protein stability in combination with /in-lieu of - other possible additives. The aforementioned formulations are somewhat analogous to the “carrier” versions of many formulations from “R and D systems” that have as high as 50 µg of BSA per µg of the recombinant protein product. If, needed or desired, abm scientists can substitute BSA for other stabilizing additives for most formulations.
Are your Escherichia coli sourced growth factors: 1) Human derived materials free? 2) Recombinant proteins free?
Yes, all of abm's growth factors made in Escherichia coli using recombinant technology contain no human derived-products or other recombinant proteins. In the rare cases of BSA presence, this will be mentioned in the product's formulation.
