M CSF Rat
|Alternative Name :||Macrophage colony-stimulating factor 1, CSF-1, MCSF, Csf1, Csfm.|
|Amount :||10 µg|
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
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.
Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor Rat Recombinant produced in E.coli is a non-glycosylated homodimer, containing 2 x 155 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 36.2 kDa.MCSF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
|Purification :||Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.|
|Content :||Lyophilized from a sterile filtered aqueous solution containing 10mM Na3PO4, pH 7.5.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized MCSF in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
|Storage condition :||Lyophilized MCSF although 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.|

The activity as determined by dose-dependent induction of M-NFS-60 cell proliferation is 1.65 ng/ml. This corresponds to an expected specific activity of 6.1x105 units/mg.
