Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a disulfide linked homodimer, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 2 x 159 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 36.8 KD.MCSF 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 MCSF protein was lyophilized with 10mM sodium Phosphate, pH-8.0 & 50mM NaCl.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized MCSF in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized MCSF althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution MCSF should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Amino Acid Sequence
The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids of MCSF was determined and found to be Met-Glu-Glu-Val-Ser.
Greater than 97.0% as determined by:(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
The ED50, calculated by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of murine M-NFS-60 indicator cells was found to be < 2.0ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 500,00Units/mg.
