Macrophage Colony-Stimulating Factor 1 (M-CSF) Mouse, Sf9 Insect Cells Recombinant Protein is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 164 amino acids (33-187 aa) and has a molecular mass of 19.1 kDa. The M-CSF is fused to a 6 amino acid His tag at C-terminus and is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) is a cytokine that plays an essential role in the regulation of survival, proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic precursor cells, especially mononuclear phagocytes, such as macrophages and monocytes. Promotes the release of proinflammatory chemokines, and thereby plays an important role in innate immunity and in inflammatory processes. Plays an important role in the regulation of osteoclast proliferation and differentiation, the regulation of bone resorption, and is required for normal bone development. Required for normal male and female fertility. Promotes reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton, regulates formation of membrane ruffles, cell adhesion and cell migration. Plays a role in lipoprotein clearance. [Reference: UniProtKB - P07141 (CSF1_MOUSE)].
