GM-CSF Receptor Alpha (CSF2RA) is the alpha subunit of the heterodimeric receptor for colony stimulating factor 2, a cytokine which controls the production, differentiation, and function of granulocytes and macrophages. CSFR2 is also a member of the cytokine family of receptors. In addition, this gene is found in the pseudoautosomal region (PAR) of the X and Y chromosomes. Multiple transcript variants encoding various isoforms have been found for this gene, while some of the isoforms being membrane-bound and others being soluble. Diseases associated with CSF2RA include surfactant metabolism dysfunction, pulmonary 4, and csf2ra-related pulmonary surfactant metabolism dysfunction.
CSF2RA produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 310 amino acids (20-320a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 35.9kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 40-57kDa). CSF2RA is expressed with a 9 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
CSF2RA protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Measured by its ability to inhibit GM-CSF dependent proliferation of TF1 human erythroleukemic cells. The ED50 for this effect is less or equal to 10ug/ml in the presence of 0.5ng/ml GM-CSF.

GM-CSF Receptor Alpha Human Recombinant: A Glimpse into Its Potential and Implications
Granulocyte-Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor (GM-CSF) receptor alpha, a pivotal component in the GM-CSF signaling pathway, has been the focal point of numerous studies pertaining to hematopoiesis and immune responses. This paper provides an overview of the GM-CSF receptor alpha human recombinant, exploring its characteristics, production techniques, and potential therapeutic applications.
GM-CSF, a cytokine responsible for the differentiation and proliferation of white blood cells, functions by binding to its receptor, GM-CSF receptor. The alpha subunit (GM-CSFRα) of this receptor plays a crucial role in ligand binding and is essential for initiating cellular responses. Modern biotechnological advancements have led to the successful production of its human recombinant form, offering new avenues in medical research.
Production and Features Recombinant GM-CSFRα is synthesized using cutting-edge recombinant DNA technologies, predominantly in bacterial or mammalian expression systems. This human recombinant form retains its ability to bind to GM-CSF, maintaining its biological functionality and providing myriad research opportunities.
Therapeutic and Clinical Prospects
- Autoimmune Diseases: GM-CSF is often overexpressed in various autoimmune disorders. By utilizing recombinant GM-CSFRα as a potential decoy receptor, it's feasible to mitigate the effects of excessive GM-CSF, offering a new therapeutic strategy.
- Hematopoietic Disorders: Given its integral role in white blood cell development, recombinant GM-CSFRα might hold promise in treatments or as a diagnostic tool for certain hematological conditions.
- Research Paradigm: Beyond therapeutic applications, the recombinant GM-CSFRα can serve as an invaluable research tool to elucidate the nuances of GM-CSF signaling, aiding in the understanding of immune response mechanisms.
GM-CSF receptor alpha human recombinant stands at the forefront of exciting research and therapeutic potential. While its full capabilities are yet to be realized, current insights underscore its significance in the realms of immunology and medicine.
