Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Granulocyte colony stimulating factor, G-CSF, GCSF, Pluripoietin; Filgrastim; Lenograstim;
Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor (G-CSF) is a potent stimulator of bone marrow cells, especially those of neutrophil lineage. In addition, G-CSF can enhance the survival and activate the immunological functions of mature neutrophils. Human G-CSF is an 18.8 kDa protein containing 175 amino acid residues.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 195 of human G-CSF
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.2 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-human G-CSF polyclonal antibody in phosphate (PBS, pH 7.2) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5 % BSA and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western Blot analysis (1-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal condition should be determined individually. Other applications have not been tested.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF or GCSF), also known as colony-stimulating factor 3 (CSF 3), is a glycoprotein that stimulates the bone marrow to produce granulocytes and stem cells and release them into the bloodstream. Functionally, it is a cytokine and hormone, a type of colony-stimulating factor, and is produced by a number of different tissues. The pharmaceutical analogs of naturally occurring G-CSF are called filgrastim and lenograstim.
