Recombinant Human Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor (CSF1)
|Description||M-CSF is produced by monocytes, granulocytes, endothelial cells, and fibroblasts. After cell activation, B cells and T cells and also a number of tumor cell lines are capable also of synthesizing this factor. M-CSF has been found to be synthesized by uterine epithelial cells in vivo. The M-CSF receptor is identical with the proto-oncogene fms. It has been renamed CD115. The receptor is a transmembrane protein with an extracellular ligand-binding domain of 512 amino acids, an intramembrane domain of 25 amino acids, and a cytoplasmic domain of 435 amino acids encoding a tyrosine kinase. Human M-CSF is active in mouse and rat cells. The murine factor is active in rat cells but inactive in human cells. M-CSF is a specific factor in that the proliferation inducing activity is more or less restricted to the macrophage lineage. M-CSF is a potent stimulator of functional activities of monocytes.|
|Molecular Weight||18.5 kDa|
|Endotoxin Level||<1.0 EU/μg of recombinant protein as determined by the LAL method|
|Purity||>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|Bioactivity||The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of M-NFS-60 cells was found to be < 1.0 ng/mL|
|Formulation||Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in Tris and NaCl (pH 7.5)|
|Reconstitution||A quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers.|
|Storage||The lyophilized protein is stable for at least one year from date of receipt at -70°C. Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8°C for one month, or at -20°C for six months, with a carrier protein without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.|
|Usage||For research use only. Not for diagnostic or therapeutic use.|
· Endotoxin is generally measured in Endotoxin Units per milliliter (EU/mL).
· For recombinant proteins: EU is reported per microgram of protein.
· One EU = 0.1-0.2 ng endotoxin/µg of protein.
· At abm, we do the LAL chromogenic assays that can detect down to 0.01 EU/ml.
