Amino Acid Sequence
Greater than 98.0% as determined by: (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC. (b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
The ED50, calculated by the dose-dependant stimulation of the proliferation of murine M-NFS-60 indicator cells was found 0.91 ng/ml.
The protein (1 mg/ml) was lyophilized with 0.5×PBS, pH 8.0.
At ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store the product at the temperature recommended below.
Lyophilized M-CSF although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution MCSF should be stored at 4°C between 2–7 days and for future use below -18°C. Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
