Background information

Beside its role as growth factor for granulocyte and monocyte precursors, GM-CSF also functions as a growth factor for erythroid and megakaryocytic precursor cells in conjunction with erythropoietin. GM-CSF is secreted by various cell types including T cells, macrophages, endothelial cells, and fibroblasts in response to inflammatory stimuli and cytokines. In addition, GM-CSF is a potent chemoattractant for neutrophils and eosinophils and enhances the effector functions of neutrophils and macrophages.

Applications

MACS GMP Recombinant Human GM-CSF can be used for a variety of applications, including the
ex vivo
generation of human dendritic cells from enriched CD14
+
monocytes.
