MGI-1GM (Macrophage granulocyte inducer-1GM)

Colony Stimulating Factor 2 (GM-CSF) was initially characterized as a growth factor that can support the in vitro colony formation of granulocyte-macrophage progenitors. It is produced by a number of different cell types, including activated T cells, B cells, macrophages, mast cells, endothelial cells and fibroblasts, in response to cytokine or immune and inflammatory stimuli. CSF2 is also a growth factor for erythroid, megakaryocyte and eosinophil progenitors. On mature hematopoietic cells, CSF2 is a survival factor for and activates the effector functions of granulocytes, monocytes/macrophages and eosinophils. It can induce human endothelial cells to migrate and proliferate and can also stimulate the proliferation of a number of tumor cell lines, including osteogenic sarcoma, carcinoma and adenocarcinoma cell lines. CSF2 is species specific and human CSF2 has no biological effects on mouse cells.

Storage/Handling: This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8°C, but should be kept at -20°C for long term storage. The reconstituted sample can be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at -80 °C for up to 6 months. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

Reconstitution: The sample should be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in a siliconized tube using PBS that contains a 0.1% BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Reconstituted solutions are stable for up to one week at 2-8°C. Stock solutions should be aliquoted and stored at -80°C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions containing BSA or serum.
