Animal-Free Cytokines

Animal-Free Recombinant Human M-CSF

Product Details

Catalog Number: AF-300-25
Description:

M-CSF is a potent hematopoietic factor produced by a variety of cells, including lymphocytes, monocytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, myoblasts and osteoblasts. It is a key regulator of cellular proliferation, differentiation, and survival for blood monocytes, tissue macrophages, and their respective progenitor cells. M-CSF has been shown to play important roles in modulating dermal thickness and fertility. M-CSF is clinically used in the treatment of infection, malignancies and atherosclerosis. It facilitates hematopoietic recovery after bone marrow transplantation. Human M-CSF is reactive in murine systems, but the murine molecule exhibits no activity on human cells. Recombinant Human M-CSF is a 36.8 kDa homodimeric protein consisting of two 159 amino acid polypeptide subunits.

Manufactured using all Animal-Free reagents.
