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. CSF-1 induces cells of the monocyte/macrophage lineage. It plays a role in immunological defenses, bone metabolism, lipoproteins clearance, fertility and pregnancy.
CSF-1, Lanimostim, MCSF, MGC31930, M-CSF.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The recombinant MCSF was lyophilized after extensive dialysis against PBS.
It is recommended to reconstitute the MCSF in sterile PBS 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.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
The ED50 of 3-4ng/ml is measured by its ability to stimulate the proliferation of mouse M-NFS-60 cells.
