M-CSF Human Recombinant produced in HEK cells is a glycosylated homodimer, having a molecular weight range of 35-40kDa due to glycosylation.The M-CSF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Granulocyte/Macrophage Colony-Stimulating Factors are cytokines that act in hematopoiesis by controlling the production, differentiation, and function of 2 related white cell populations of the blood, the granulocytes and the monocytes-macrophages. MCSF induces cells of the monocyte/macrophage lineage. MCSF plays a role in immunological defenses, bone metabolism, lipoproteins clearance, fertility and pregnancy.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The M-CSF was lyophilized from 1mg/ml in 1xPBS.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized M-CSF in sterile water not less than 100
Lyophilized M-CSF althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution M-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.
Greater than 95% as obsereved by SDS-PAGE.
The specific activity was determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of murine M-NFS-60 cells (Mouse Myeloid Leukemia indicator cell line) and is typically 0.5-4ng/ml.
