Description: The proto-oncogene c-kit encodes a transmembrane tyrosine kinase receptor, and its ligand for c-Kit receptor has been identified as the stem cell factor (SCF). Recent experimental studies have shown that c-Kit plays a key role in the development of a component of the pacemaker system that is required for generation of autonomic gut motility. These studies further suggest that interaction of the c-Kit and SCF is essential for development of enteric nervous system. Recently, it is reported that the c-Kit may be an important marker for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) which may originate from the interstitial cells of Cajal (ICCs).
