Macrophage colony-stimulating factor 1 receptor, CSF-1 receptor (EC:188.8.131.52), CSF-1-R, CSF-1R, M-CSF-R, Proto-oncogene c-Fms, CD115, CSF1R, FMS.
MCSFR which is also familiar as CSF1R, is part of the type3 subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases. MCSFR is expressed mainly on cells of the monocyte and macrophage lineage, stem cells, and in the growing placenta. Most of the biological effects of this cytokine are mediated by MCSFR. MCSFR contains an extracellular ligand-binding domain, a single membrane-spanning segment, and an intracellular tyrosine kinase domain. Originally CSF1 and this receptor were implicated as vital for normal trophoblastic implantation as well as monocyte development. The role of CSF1/CSF1R in normal mammary gland development is actually very interesting since this connection has also been discovered in the biology of breast cancer with the results of abnormal expression of CSF1 and its receptor. Likewise, in Alzheimer's disease and after brain injuries an increased level of CSF1R was found in the microglia, which causes the microglia to become more active.
MCSFR produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 737 amino acids (20-517a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 82.1kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 70-100kDa).
MCSFR is expressed with a 239 amino acid hIgG-His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
MCSFR protein solution (0.25mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Measured by its ability to inhibit M-CSF dependent proliferation of M-NFS-60 mouse myelogenous leukemia lymphoblast cells. The ED50 for this effect is less or equal to 100ng/ml in the presence of 10 ng/ml M-CSF.
