- CD117: Mast/stem cell growth factor receptor, also known as proto-oncogene c-Kit or tyrosine-protein kinase Kit or CD117, is a receptor tyrosine kinase protein that in humans is encoded by the KIT gene. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. KIT was first described by the German biochemist Axel Ullrich in 1987 as the cellular homolog of the feline sarcoma viral oncogene v-kit.
- also known as C-kit receptor, Kit, PBT, Fdc, c-KIT, c-Kit receptor tyrosine kinase, Kit oncogene, Ssm, W, Bs, Stem cell factor receptor, Steel factor receptor, v-Kit Hardy-Zuckerman 4 feline sarcoma viral oncogene homolog
- Cd117 a.k.a. v-kit Hardy-Zuckerman 4 feline sarcoma viral oncogene homolog is a gene.
