GM CSF Mouse

Product Name: GM CSF Mouse

Product No: CYT-222

Synonym(s): Granulocyte Macrophage-Colony Stimulating Factor Mouse Recombinant, CSF-2, MGI-1GM, GM-CSF, Pluripoietin-alpha, CSF2, GMCSF

One-Letter-Code: The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Met-Ala-Pro-Thr-Arg.

Description: Granulocyte Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 125 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 14285.35 Dalton.GM-CSF Mouse is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Protein Derived From: Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance: Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Purity: Greater than 98.0% as determined by(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Stability: Lyophilized Granulocyte Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution GM-CSF should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Biological Activity: The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependant stimulation of the proliferation of murine FDC-P1 cell line is < 0.2 ng/ml, corresponding to a Specific Activity of 5,000,000 IU/mg.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Granulocyte Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor in sterile 20mM AcOH (acetic Acid) not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Protein content: GM-CSF quantitation was carried out by two independent methods1. UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.765 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics). 2. Analysis by RP-HPLC, using a calibrated solution of GM-CSF as a Reference Standard.
