Gene: KITLG (KIT ligand) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: KITLG
Name: KIT ligand
Description: Predicted to have cytokine activity and stem cell factor receptor binding activity. Involved in embryonic hemopoiesis; male gonad development; and positive regulation of cell population proliferation. Localizes to several cellular components, including the filopodium; lamellipodium; and plasma membrane. Implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 69.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: c-Kit ligand; DCUA; DFNA69; DKFZp686F2250; familial progressive hyperpigmentation 2; FPH2; FPHH; kit-ligand; Kitl; KL-1; mast cell growth factor; MGF; SCF; SF; SHEP7; SLF; steel factor; stem cell factor
