||Macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF, also termed CSF-1) receptor is an integral membrane tyrosine kinase, expressed in monocytes (macrophages and their progenitors) and drives growth and development of this blood cell lineage. It also triggers growth and development of mononuclear phagocytes and placental trophoblasts. M-CSF receptor is present in osteoclasts both at mRNA and protein levels. When M-CSF ligand specifically binds to the M-CSF receptor on osteoclasts, it induces receptor dimerization, activation and autophosphorylation of cytoplasmic tyrosine residues M-CSF and its receptor present as candidate therapeutic targets in states of inflammatory bone erosion.
||The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Human M-CSF R is 81 kDa. However, as a result of glycosylation, the actual molecular weight of the monomer as observed by migration on SDS Page is 150 kDa.
|State Of Matter:
||>97% by SDS Page and analyzed by silver stain.
||<1.0 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method.
||This lyophilized protein is stable for six to twelve months when stored desiccated at -20℃ to -70℃. After aseptic reconstitution, this protein may be stored at 2℃ to 8℃ for one month or at -20℃ to -70℃ in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles. See Product Insert for exact lot specific storage instructions.
