Granulocyte Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor, GM-CSF, is hematopoietic factor produced by endothelial cells, monocytes, fibroblasts and T cells in response to a number of inflammatory mediators. GM-CSF is able to stimulate the production of neutrophilic granulocytes, macrophages, and mixed granulocyte-macrophage colonies from bone marrow cells. GM-CSF can also stimulate some functional activities in mature granulocytes and macrophages. Human and mouse GM-CSF show no cross-reactivity.Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 578 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered. GM-CSF (Granulocyte-Macrophage colony-stimulating factor) is a 14.6kDa hematopoietic growth factor that exists in glycosylated and non-glycosylated biologically active forms, and stimulates the development of granulocytes, macrophages, early megakaryocytes and eosinophil progenitor cells. The active form of the GM-CSF protein is found extracellularly as a homodimer and the GM-CSF gene has been localized to a cluster of related genes at chromosome region 5q31, which is known to be associated with interstitial deletions in the 5q-syndrome and acute myelogenous leukemia. Other genes in the cluster include those encoding interleukins 4, 5, and 13. The ability of recombit GM-CSF to increase hematopoietic cell recovery has become a focus area in the therapeutic treatment of patients following bone marrow transplantation. Recent studies have investigated GM-CSF in inflammatory and autoimmune diseases such as arthritis, arthritis related interstitial lung disease, nephritis, and psoriasis. In the CNS, GM-CSF depletion or neutralization has been studied in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and multiple sclerosis (MS).
