  • Product overview

    Abcam’s MCSF Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human MCSF in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human MCSF coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and MCSF present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated antiHuman MCSF antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of MCSF bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • FunctionGranulocyte/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. CSF-1 induces cells of the monocyte/macrophage lineage. It plays a role in immunological defenses, bone metabolism, lipoproteins clearance, fertility and pregnancy.
  • Post-translational
    Glycosylation and proteolytic cleavage yield different soluble forms. A high molecular weight soluble form is a proteoglycan containing chondroitin sulfate.
    Isoform 1 is N- and O-glycosylated. Isoform 3 is N-glycosylated.
