Macrophage Colony-Stimulating Factor Summary

Description: A mononuclear phagocyte colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) synthesized by mesenchymal cells. The compound stimulates the survival, proliferation, and differentiation of hematopoietic cells of the monocyte-macrophage series. M-CSF is a disulfide-bonded glycoprotein dimer with a MW of 70 kDa. It binds to a specific high affinity receptor (RECEPTOR, MACROPHAGE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR).

Also Known As: Colony Stimulating Factor 1; Colony Stimulating Factor, Macrophage; CSF-1; CSF-M; Colony-Stimulating Factor 1 Show All >>
