GM CSF is a cytokine that controls the production, differentiation, and function of granulocytes and macrophages. The active form of the protein is found extracellularly as a homodimer. This gene has been localized to a cluster of related genes at chromosome region 5q31, which is known to be associated with interstitial deletions in the 5q- syndrome and acute myelogenous leukemia. Other genes in the cluster include those encoding interleukins 4, 5, and 13. GM CSF stimulates the growth and differentiation of hematopoietic precursor cells from various lineages, including granulocytes, macrophages, eosinophils and erythrocytes.
Mouse anti-human granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM CSF) is purified by ion exchange column. Protein concentration is 1 mg/ml in PBS (after reconstitution).
Reported to be effective for direct ELISA, western blot, and immuneprecipitation.
