The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Biological activityThe ED50 of 3-4ng/ml is measured by its ability to stimulate the proliferation of Mouse M-NFS-60 cells.

Preparation and Storage
Stability and Storage
Shipped at 4°C. Store at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions.
Constituent: 99% PBS
This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
ReconstitutionIt is recommended to reconstitute ab125758 in sterile PBS not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions. Upon reconstitution MCSF 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.

Processed macrophage colony-stimulating factor 1
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.
