Scientific Background :c-KIT (T670E) is the human homolog of the proto-oncogene c-kit which was first identified as the cellular homolog of the feline sarcoma viral oncogene v-kit. c-KIT (T670E) is a type 3 transmembrane receptor for MGF (mast cell growth factor, also known as stem cell factor). c-KIT (T670E) function in hematopoiesis, melanogenesis, and gametogenesis (1) and mutations in this gene are associated with gastrointestinal stromal tumors, mast cell disease, acute myelogenous lukemia, and piebaldism. c-KIT (T670E) signaling is involved in human skin pigmentation and that this signaling pathway is regulated by sKIT (2). It is also help in regulating primordial germ cell growth.
