This ligand binds to Fms-Like Tyrosine Kinase-3 (FLT-3). Mouse FLT-3 ligand stimulates the proliferation of cells expressing mouse FLT-3 receptors. The effects of FLT-3 ligand are synergized by coexpression of G-CSF, GM-CSF, M-CSF, IL3 and SCF. FLT-3 ligand promotes long-term expansion and differentiation of mouse pro-B-cells in the presence of IL-7 or in combination of IL-7 and IL-3. Recombinant mouse FLT-3 Ligand produced in E. Coli is a non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 144 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 16,431 Daltons.
