Purified Recombinant Mouse G-CSF (>98%)
<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
This monoclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco's phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 - 7.4 containing 5.0% w/v trehalose with no calcium, magnesium or preservatives present.
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for up to twelve months. The reconstituted antibody can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted antibody, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. No detectable loss of activity was observed after six months.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
ELISA Sandwich: This antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA. The suggested coating concentration is 2-8 µg/ml. A suitable detection antibody is PN:G140 at a concentration of approximately 50 ng/ml. A suggested standard for this assay is PN:G129.
Western Blotting: To detect Mouse G-CSF this monoclonal antibody can be used at a concentration of 1-2 µg/ml. This monoclonal antibody should be used in conjunction with compatible second-step reagents such as PN:R377 and a chromogenic substrate such as PN:T343. The detection limit for Mouse G-CSF is 5 ng/lane under either reducing or non-reducing conditions. The sensitivity of detection may increase up to 50 fold when a chemiluminescent substrate is used. A suitable Western blotting control is PN:G129.
Flow Cytometry: Suitable for use at concentration of 0.25 µg/106 cells.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Neutralization: This antibody is useful for neutralization of Mouse G-CSF bioactivity. The antibody dose required to neutralize 50% (ND50) of the biological activity of Mouse G-CSF (at 0.125 ng/ml) is 0.01 - 0.03 µg/ml.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Rat Anti-Mouse Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor (G-CSF) recognizes an epitope on Mouse G-CSF. This monoclonal antibody was purified using multi-step affinity chromatography methods such as Protein A or G depending on the species and isotype. Less than 0.06% cross-reactivity with rhG-CSF, rhCNTF, rmIL-6, rmLIF and rmOSM was observed.
Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF or GCSF), also known as G-CSF colony-stimulating factor 3 (CSF 3) is a colony-stimulating factor hormone. It is a glycoprotein, growth factor or cytokine produced by a number of different tissues to stimulate the bone marrow to produce granulocytes and stem cells. G-CSF then stimulates the bone marrow to release them into the blood. It also stimulates the survival, proliferation, differentiation, and function of neutrophil precursors and mature neutrophils. G-CSF is produced by endothelium, macrophages, and a number of other immune cells. It stimulates the production of white blood cells. G-CSF is also used to increase the number of hematopoietic stem cells in the blood of the donor before collection by leukapheresis for use in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
