c-Kit is transmembrane tyrosine kinase encoded by the c-Kit proto oncogene. c-Kit acts to regulate a variety of biological processes including cell proliferation, apoptosis, chemotaxis and adhesion.
Mutations in c-Kit have been found to be important for tumor growth and progression in a variety of cancers including mast cell diseases, gastrointestinal stromal tumor, acute myeloid leukemia, Ewing sarcoma and lung cancer. Phosphorylation at tyrosine 721 of c-Kit allows binding and activation of PI3 kinase.
