Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab99178 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 70 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 60 kDa).

Target

  • Function
    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. 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
    modifications
    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.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 60 kDa
    Observed band size : 70 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 170 kDa,52 kDa (possible cleavage fragment),98 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 8 minutesMCSF contains a number of potential glycosylation sites (SwissProt) which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted.
  • IHC image of MCSF staining in human tonsil formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab99178, 10µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
  • ab99178 staining MCSF in mouse skin wound tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 10 minutes and blocked with 1% BSA for 30 minutes at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate-EDTA buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in TBS pH 7.6) for 1 hour at 25°C. A Biotin-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) polyclonal (1/300) was used as the secondary antibody.
