- Product name
Mouse M-CSF protein
Amino acid sequence derived from mouse CSF1 (P07141-1) (Met1-Glu262) was expressed.
1. Immobilized mouse CSF1 at 10 μg/ml (100 μl/well) can bind mouse CSF1R-Fch, The EC50 of mouse CSF1R-Fch is 0.04-0.1 μg/ml. 2. Measured in a cell proliferation assay using M‑NFS‑60 mouse myelogenous leukemia lymphoblast cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 1.5-7.5 ng/ml.
- Protein length
The recombinant mouse CSF1 comprises 230 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 26 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 45 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.
- Preparation method
> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4.
- Molecular weight
- Usage notes
Always centrifuge tubes before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Mouse M-CSF protein in sterile ddH2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
- Storage instructions
Lyophilized Mouse M-CSF protein product should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution, the protein 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 product is shipped at ambient temperature.

Macrophage colony-stimulating factor 1, also known as CSF-1, M-CSF, Lanimostim and CSF1, is a single-pass membrane protein which is disulfide-linked as a homodimer or heterodimer. 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. M-CSF/CSF-1 is known to facilitate monocyte survival, monocyte-to-macrophage conversion, and macrophage proliferation. M-CSF/CSF-1 is a secreted cytokine which influences hemopoietic stem cells to differentiate into macrophages or other related cell types. It binds to the Colony stimulating factor 1 receptor. M-CSF/CSF-1 may also be involved in development of the placenta. The active form of M-CSF/CSF-1 is found extracellularly as a disulfide-linked homodimer, and is thought to be produced by proteolytic cleavage of membrane-bound precursors. M-CSF/CSF-1 induces cells of the monocyte/macrophage lineage. It also plays a role in immunological defenses, bone metabolism, lipoproteins clearance, fertility and pregnancy. Upregulation of M-CSF/CSF-1 in the infarcted myocardium may have an active role in healing not only through its effects on cells of monocyte/macrophage lineage, but also by regulating endothelial cell chemokine expression.
