Recombinant Rhesus Monkey Colony Stimulating Factor 2 (granulocyte-macrophage)
Granulocyte-Macrophage ColonyStimulating Factor, GM-CSF
MGI-1GM (Macrophage granulocyte inducer-1GM)
Colony Stimulating Factor 2 (CSF2), previously called Granulocyte-Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor (GM-CSF), is secreted by a number of different cell types (including activated T cells, B cells, macrophages, mast cells, endothelial cells and fibroblasts) in response to cytokine or immune and inflammatory stimulation. It was initially characterized as a growth factor that can support the in vitro colony formation of granulocyte-macrophage progenitors and has functions of stimulates the growth and differentiation of hematopoietic precursor cells from various lineages. CSF2 has also been reported to have a functional role on non-hematopoietic cells and can induce human endothelial cells to migrate and proliferate. Additionally, it can stimulate the proliferation of a number of tumor cell lines, including osteogenic sarcoma, carcinoma and adenocarcinoma cell lines. It is reported that CSF2 has no biological effects across species.
