Product Summary

The Quantikine® QuicKit™ Human G-CSF Immunoassay is a one step, 80-minute solid phase ELISA designed to measure human G-CSF levels in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant human G-CSF and antibodies raised against the recombinant protein. Results obtained using natural human G-CSF showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the QuicKit™ standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human G-CSF.

The recovery of human G-CSF spiked to three levels in samples throughout the range of the assay was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Supernates (n=4) 101 93-105

Heparin Plasma (n=2) 94 90-99
Serum (n=2) 79 77-84


To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of human G-CSF were diluted with calibrator diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Data Examples

Human G-CSF ELISA Standard Curve

Human G-CSF QuicKit Recovery Competitor Comparison G-CSF is spiked at three known concentrations throughout the range of the assay and run to measure response of the spiked sample matrix. Culture media recovery is 102% compared to 122% for the top competitor. In spike and recovery experiments, natural samples are spiked with the recombinant target analyte of interest to identify interference caused by sample matrices.

Human G-CSF QuicKit Spiked Linearity Competitor Comparison G-CSF is spiked at high concentration in various matrices and diluted with appropriate Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay. The linearity in serum is between 92%-112% compared to 121%-153% for the top competitor. The linearity in plasma is between 92%-93% compated to 143%-195% for the top competitor. Linearity is used to assess matrix effects and accurate measurement of sample values to provide confidence in your results.

Background: G-CSF

Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) is a 24-25 kDa monomeric glycoprotein that regulates the proliferation, differentiation, and activation of hematopoietic cells in the neutrophilic granulocyte lineage. Mature human G-CSF is a 178 amino acid (aa) O-glycosylated protein that contains two intrachain disulfide bridges. In humans, alternate splicing generates a second minor isoform with a 3 aa deletion. Mouse and human G-CSF share 76% aa sequence identity, and the two proteins show species cross-reactivity. G-CSF is produced by activated monocytes and macrophages, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, astrocytes, neurons, and bone marrow stroma cells. In addition, various tumor cells express G-CSF constitutively.   

Human G-CSF receptor (G-CSF R) is a 120 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the hematopoietin receptor superfamily. The mature protein consists of a 603 aa extracellular domain (ECD), a 23 aa transmembrane segment, and a 186 aa cytoplasmic domain. The ECD contains an N-terminal Ig-like domain, a cytokine receptor homology domain, and three fibronectin type III domains. Alternate splicing of human G-CSF R generates additional isoforms including a potentially soluble form of the receptor. The ECDs of mouse and human G-CSF R share 63% aa sequence identity. G-CSF R forms a complex with the ligand in a 2:2 ratio. It is expressed on monocytes, neutrophils, megakaryocytes, platelets, myeloid progenitors, trophoblasts and placenta, endothelial cells, and various tumor cell types.   

G-CSF is an important regulator for granulopoiesis in vivo, and mutations in G-CSF R are associated with congenital neutropenia. G-CSF can support the growth of multilineage hematopoietic progenitor cells and mobilize them from the bone marrow into the bloodstream. G-CSF enhances the functional capacity of mature neutrophils and supports their survival by limiting the rate of apoptosis. G-CSF also enhances M-CSF induced monocytopoiesis from hematopoietic progenitor cells and stimulates the proliferation of peripheral Th2-inducing dendritic cells (30, 31). It promotes the development of T cell immune tolerance as well as tissue recovery following myocardial infarction and cerebral ischemia.

Assay Procedure

These assays utilize an anti-tag coated microplate. Standards, samples, and controls are added to plate, followed by subsequent addition of an antibody cocktail. Following a 1 hour incubation, plates are washed and substrate is added and incubated for 20 minutes. Stop solution is then added and plates are read using a standard microplate reader.
