Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab52864 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||1/2000. Predicted molecular weight: 60 kDa.
This antibody fails to detect endogenous natural samples in WB.
For unpurified use at 1/50 dilution.
|IHC-P||1/500. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
For unpurified use at 1/50 - 1/100 dilution.
For unpurified use at 1/250 - 1/500 dilution.
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.
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.
Cellular localizationCell membrane and Secreted > extracellular space.

Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of Human kidney tissue sections labeling M-CSF with Purified ab52864 at 1:500 dilution (1.52 µg/ml). Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using ab93684 (Tris/EDTA buffer, pH 9.0)
Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence analysis of THP-1 (Human monocytic leukemia monocyte) cells labeling M-CSF with Purified ab52864 at 1:100 (7.6 µg/ml). Cells were fixed in 100% Methanol and permeabilized with None. Cells were counterstained with Ab195889 Anti-alpha Tubulin antibody [DM1A] - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor® 594) 1:200 (2.5 µg/ml). Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488, ab150077) was used as the secondary antibody at 1:1000 (2 µg/ml) dilution. DAPI nuclear counterstain. PBS instead of the primary antibody was used as the secondary antibody only control.
