The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 60 kDa.
Use a concentration of 0.5 - 2 µg/ml. May be used in indirect ELISA or as a capture reagent in sandwich ELISA.
Use a concentration of 0.05 - 0.08 µg/ml.
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 modificationsGlycosylation 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.
