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.
