Detailed product information

Background information

Macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF), a four α-helical bundle cytokine, is a potent hematopoietic regulator. It is primarily produced by monocytes, granulocytes, endothelial cells, and fibroblasts. The main function of M-CSF is the regulation of proliferation, differentiation, and survival of monocytes, macrophages, and their hematopoietic progenitors. Furthermore, M-CSF has been shown to play an important role in immunological defense, bone metabolism, fertility, and pregnancy.

Applications

Human M-CSF can be used for a variety of applications, including:
  • Survival studies and apoptosis assays, for example, using peripheral blood monocytes.
  • Differentiation of macrophages from peripheral blood monocytes.
  • Differentiation of osteoclasts from CD14+ monocytes.

Biological activity

  • The specific activity is determined by proliferation assay using mouse M-NFS-60 cells according to Mire-Sluis, A. R.
    et al.1
    The proliferation assay was calibrated with the international standard for human M-CSF (NIBSC code 89/512) provided by the WHO/ National Institute for Biological Standards and Control.
