Gene: KITLG (KIT ligand) Homo sapiens
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
