Induced proliferation of TF-1 cells assay for Human SCF. Cell proliferation was measured to calculate the ED50, which is as expected less than 15 ng/ml.
Non-reducing (-) and reducing (+) conditions in a 4 - 20% Tris-Glycine gel stained with Coomassie Blue. 1 μg of protein was loaded in each lane. Human SCF has a predicted Mw of 18.6 kDa.

Stem Cell Factor (SCF) is a cytokine made by fibroblasts and endothelial cells. SCF binds to the receptor c-Kit/CD117 and plays a critical role in the maintenance, survival, and differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells. Human SCF shows no activity on mouse cells, but mouse and rat SCF are active on human cells.

Activity Assay

Human SCF is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The activity is determined by the dose-dependent proliferation of TF-1 cells and it is typically less than 15 ng/ml. This corresponds to an expected specific activity of 6.7 x 104 units/mg.
