This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
ReconstitutionReconstitute in H2O to a concentration of 0.1-1 mg/ml. The solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and store at 4°C for 1 week or –20°C for future use. Reconstituted ab123845 should be
stored at working aliquots at -20°C.
Colony stimulating factor 3
Colony stimulating factor 3 (granulocyte)
Granulocyte colony stimulating factor
Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor
Macrophage granulocyte inducer 2
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. This CSF induces granulocytes.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the IL-6 superfamily.
Post-translational modificationsO-glycan consists of Gal-GalNAc disaccharide which can be modified with up to two sialic acid residues (done in recombinantly expressed G-CSF from CHO cells).
