M-CSF (macrophage colony stimulating factor, colony stimulating factor 1, CSF-1) is a hemtopoietic growth factor produced by monocytes, granulocytes, endothelial cells, fibroblasts and activated B-cells and T-cells. M-CSF stimulates macrophage colony formation and regulates proliferation and differentiation of hematopoeitic stem cells into macrophages and regulates survival and differentiation of monocytes. It enhances antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity, enhances marophage killing of tumor cells and microorganisms, regulates the release of cytokines and inhibits bone resorption by osteoclasts. Human M-CSF shows biological activity on murine and rat cells and although murine M-CSF is active in rat cells it is inactive in human cells.
Produced in the endosperm tissue of barley grain (Hordeum vulgare).
PBS pH 7.2, sterile filtered through 0.2 µm filter.
Greater than 95% by SDS-PAGE gel analysis.
Note: Always centrifuge the vial before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized protein in sterile buffered saline to a concentration of no less than 100 µg/ml. For long term storage of the reconstituted solution it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
The lyophilized protein, though stable at room temperature for few weeks, is best stored at -20°C. Reconstituted protein should be used immediately or stored in working aliquots at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Each batch of ISOkine growth factor is tested for bioactivity and verified to have comparable activity to a commercial source. The bioactivity of ISOkine recombinant human M-CSF was determined by its dose-dependent effect on the proliferation of M-NFS-60 cells. The ED50 value for this effect is typically < 4 ng/ml corresponding to specific activity > 2.5 x 10e5 U/mg. Optimal concentration should be determined for specific applications and cell lines.
Endotoxin level is less than 0.005ng per µg of ISOkine product (0.05EU/µg).
Purified ISOkine product carries no pyrogenic or pro-inflammatory contaminants, as assayed with monocyte activation test using Human 10-plex Cytokine Assay measuring IL-6, TNF-alpha and IL-1 beta induction. ** Ref. The Blood Bank, University Hospital of Iceland, Reykjavik, Iceland
Recombinant human M-CSF contains 159 amino acids and a 16 a.a. Histidine-based tag for a total length of 175a.a. and has a predicted molecular mass of 20.7 kDa. The recombinant protein migrates with an apparent molecular mass of 24-26 kDa in SDS-PAGE.
