Recombinant Human Granulocyte-Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor (Human GM-CSF)
Granulocyte-Macrophage Colony-Stimulating Factor (GM-CSF) is a powerful growth and differentiation factor which acts on hematopoietic progenitor cells and also activates differentiated granulocytes and macrophages. The 22 kDa glycosylated GMCSF, similar to IL3 and IL5, is a cytokine with a core of four bundled alpha -helices. Mature human GMCSF shares 63%70% amino acid sequence identity with canine, feline, porcine, and rat GMCSF and 54% with mouse GMCSF. GM-CSF has been and is still widely used as an adjuvant in clinical trials of vaccination with autologous tumor cells, peptides and/or dendritic cells in a variety of human neoplasms. The effects of GM-CSF on HIV-1 replication in primary monocytes and macrophages, and in related cell lines, have demonstrated augmentation of HIV-1 expression in vitro.

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
> 98% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using human TF-1 cells is less than 0.1 ng/mL, corresponding to a specific activity of > 1.0 × 107 IU/mg. Fully biologically active when compared to standard.
< 1.0 EU per 1μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1% BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20°C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
Shipping and Storage
