Recombinant Human MCSF
DescriptionMacrophage Colony Stimulating Factor (MCSF) is a hematopoietic growth factor that is widely produced by a variety of cells. MCSF stimulates the proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells into monocyte and macrophage cell types. MCSF also acts through the colony stimulating factor 1 receptor (CSF1R) to modulate processes involved in immunology, bone metabolism, fertility, and pregnancy. Human MCSF shows activity on mouse cells, however mouse MCSF shows no activity on human cells.
Activity AssayHuman MCSF is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The activity is determined by the ability to induce NFS-60 cells proliferation.
