Gene: Kitl (kit ligand) Mus musculus
Symbol: Kitl
Name: kit ligand
Description: Exhibits cytokine activity and stem cell factor receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including ectopic germ cell programmed cell death; positive regulation of hemopoiesis; and positive regulation of protein phosphorylation. Localizes to the extracellular space; integral component of membrane; and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 69. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human KITLG (KIT ligand); INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
