NCBI Summary for KIT
This gene encodes the human homolog of the proto-oncogene c-kit. C-kit was first identified as the cellular homolog of the feline sarcoma viral oncogene v-kit. This protein is a type 3 transmembrane receptor for MGF (mast cell growth factor, also known as stem cell factor). Mutations in this gene are associated with gastrointestinal stromal tumors, mast cell disease, acute myelogenous lukemia, and piebaldism. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
UniProt Comments for KIT
Kit: a receptor tyrosine kinase and a member of the subfamily that includes PDGF, CSF-1 and FLT-3/flk-2 receptors. Receptor for stem cell factor. Plays a critical role in hematopoietic stem cell, mast cell, melanocyte and germ cell development. Ligand binding induces autophosphorylation, dimerization and activation, leading to the recruitment and phosphorylation of downstream SH2-containing signaling components including PLC-gamma, PI3 kinase p85, SHP2 and CrkL, linking c-Kit to various cell signaling pathways. Molecular lesions that impair the kinase activity of c-Kit are associated with a variety of developmental disorders, while mutations that constitutively activate c-Kit can lead to hyperplasia and tumorigenesis. Activating mutations cause >90% of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST); successfully treated with inhibitors Gleevec (imatinib, Glivec) and Sutent (Sutinib, SU11248). Activating mutations also induce mastocytosis. Autocrine/paracrine stimulation may drive some lung and other tumors. Loss of expression associated with melanoma progression. Familial loss of function mutations cause piebaldism, with defects in hair and skin pigmentation due to lack of melanocytes.
