Product Summary

The Quantikine Mouse G-CSF Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure mouse G-CSF in cell culture supernates and serum. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse G-CSF and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to quantitate the recombinant mouse G-CSF accurately. Results obtained using natural mouse G-CSF showed dose-response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the recombinant Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural mouse G-CSF.


Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision

Background: G-CSF

Mouse granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) is a 24-25 kDa monomeric glycoprotein that regulates the proliferation, differentiation and activation of hematopoietic cells. Mouse G-CSF cDNA encodes a 208 amino acid (aa) precursor protein with a 30 aa signal sequence that is proteolytically cleaved to form a 178 aa O-glycosylated mature protein containing two intrachain disulfide bridges. In humans, two distinct cDNA clones, encoding a 204 aa form and a minor alternatively spliced 207 aa form of G-CSF precursors, have been isolated. Mouse and human G-CSF are 76% identical at the aa sequence level and the two proteins show species cross-reactivity. G-CSF is produced primarily by monocytes and macrophages upon activation by endotoxin, TNF-alpha or IL-1. Other cell types, including fibroblasts, endothelial cells, astrocytes and bone marrow stroma cells, can also secrete G-CSF after activation. In addition, various tumor cells express G-CSF constitutively.  

Mouse G-CSF receptor (G-CSF R) is a 120 kDa, type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the hematopoietin receptor superfamily. The mature protein is 812 amino acids in length and contains a 601 aa extracellular region, a 24 aa transmembrane segment, and a 187 aa cytoplasmic domain. The extracellular region contains multiple modules, including an N-terminal Ig-like domain, a cytokine receptor homology domain, and three fibronectin type III domains. Based on crystallographic study, G-CSF receptor forms a complex with the ligand in a 2:2 ratio. Mouse and human G-CSF receptor share 63% aa sequence identity. Cells known to express G-CSF R include monocytes and neutrophils, megakaryocytes and platelets, CD34+ CD33+ and CD34+ CD38+ hematopoietic progenitors, trophoblasts, endothelial cells and various tumor cell types.  

G-CSF is an important regulator for granulopoiesis in vivo. It has been demonstrated that G-CSF can support the growth of multi-lineage hematopoietic progenitor cells without influencing their commitment to the myeloid lineage and mobilize hematopoietic progenitor cells from the bone marrow into the bloodstream. On mature neutrophils, G-CSF may regulate neutrophil survival by controlling their rate of apoptosis. G-CSF has also been shown to enhance the functional capacity of mature neutrophils. As a consequence of its effects on hematopoietic progenitor cells, G-CSF has been shown to enhance monocytopoiesis in the presence M-CSF. Within the peripheral blood stem cell population mobilized with G-CSF, selective increases in the number of T helper 2-inducing dendritic cells are found.
