Canine GM-CSF Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects canine GM-CSF in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In Western blots, approximately 25% cross-reactivity with recombinant rat GM‑CSF is observed, approximately 5% cross-reactivity with recombinant feline GM-CSF and recombinant porcine GM‑CSF is observed, and less than 1% cross-reactivity with recombinant human GM‑CSF and recombinant mouse GM‑CSF is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified

Measured by its ability to neutralize GM‑CSF-induced proliferation in the TF‑1 human erythroleukemic cell line. Kitamura, T. et al. (1989) J. Cell Physiol. 140:323. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 2-8 µg/mL in the presence of 15 ng/mL Recombinant Canine GM‑CSF.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Scientific Data

Neutralization Cell Proliferation Induced by GM‑CSF and Neutralization by Canine GM‑CSF Antibody. View Larger

Cell Proliferation Induced by GM‑CSF and Neutralization by Canine GM‑CSF Antibody. Recombinant Canine GM-CSF (Catalog # 1546-GM) stimulates proliferation in the TF-1 human erythroleukemic cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Proliferation elicited by Recombinant Canine GM-CSF (15 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Canine GM-CSF Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1546). The ND50 is typically 2-8 µg/mL.

Immunocytochemistry GM-CSF antibody in Canine PBMCs by Immunocytochemistry (ICC). View Larger

GM‑CSF in Canine PBMCs. GM-CSF was detected in immersion fixed canine peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) treated with Calcium Ionomycin and PMA using Goat Anti-Canine GM-CSF Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1546) at 15 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Background: GM-CSF

GM-CSF was initially characterized as a factor that can support the in vitro colony formation of granulocyte-macrophage progenitors. It is also a growth factor for erythroid, megakaryocyte, and eosinophil progenitors. GM-CSF is produced by a number of different cell types (including T cells, B cells, macrophages, mast cells, endothelial cells, fibroblasts, and adipocytes) in response to cytokine or inflammatory stimuli. On mature hematopoietic cells, GM-CSF is a survival factor for and activates the effector functions of granulocytes, monocytes/macrophages, and eosinophils (1, 2). GM-CSF promotes a Th1 biased immune response, angiogenesis, allergic inflammation, and the development of autoimmunity (3-5). It shows clinical effectiveness in ameliorating chemotherapy-induced neutropenia, and GM-CSF transfected tumor cells are utilized as cancer vaccines (6, 7). The 22 kDa glycosylated GM-CSF, similar to IL-3 and IL-5, is a cytokine with a core of four bundled alpha ‑helices (8-10). Mature canine GM-CSF shares 49-57% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat GM-CSF and 69-72% with feline, human, and porcine GM‑CSF. GM-CSF exerts its biological effects through a heterodimeric receptor complex composed of GM-CSF R alpha /CD116 and the signal transducing common beta  chain (CD131) which is also a component of the high-affinity receptors for IL-3 and IL-5 (11, 12). In addition, GM‑CSF binds a naturally occurring soluble form of GM‑CSF R alpha (13). The activity of GM‑CSF is species specific between human and mouse, although human GM‑CSF is active on canine cells (14, 15).
