Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor Human Recombinant produced in CHO cells is a single, glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 174 amino acids and having a molecular mass of approximately 18 kDa.G-CSF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor is a growth factor and/or cytokine produced by the endothelium, macrophages and a number of other immune cells. GCSF stimulates the bone marrow to produce granulocytes and also to stimulate the survival, proliferation, differentiation and function of neutrophil granulocyte progenator cells and mature neutrophils.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
G-CSF was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) Phosphate- Buffered Saline, pH 7.4.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution G-CSF should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
