Rat anti Mouse CD117 antibody, clone 2B8 recognizes mouse CD117, a ~150 kDa cell surface molecule otherwise known as the Kit, or c-kit, receptor.

Rat anti Mouse CD117 antibody, clone 2B8 recognizes an epitope within the extracellular region of CD117. In mice, CD117 is predominantly expressed on multipotent haematopoietic stem cells from the adult bone marrow and foetal liver.
