GM-CSF Receptor alpha Protein, Human, Recombinant (hFc Tag)


GM-CSF Receptor alpha Protein, Human, Recombinant (hFc Tag): Product Information

> 90 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Measured by its ability to inhibit GM-CSF dependent proliferation of TF-1 human erythroleukemic cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 10-15 μg/ml .
Protein Construction
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain (Met 1-Gly 320) of human GM-CSFRα (NP_006131.2) pro-protein was expressed with the C-terminal fused Fc region of human IgG1.
Expressed Host
HEK293 Cells
Predicted N Terminal
Glu 23
Molecule Mass
The recombinant human GM-CSFRα consists of 536 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 61.2 kDa.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.

GM-CSF Receptor alpha Background Information

CD116/GM-CSFR has been preferentially associated with M4, M5 subtype of AML but is not specific. The cluster of differentiation (cluster of designation) (often abbreviated as CD) is a protocol used for the identification and investigation of cell surface molecules present on white blood cells initially but found in almost any kind of cell of the body, providing targets for immunophenotyping of cells. Physiologically, CD molecules can act in numerous ways, often acting as receptors or ligands (the molecule that activates a receptor) important to the cell. A signal cascade is usually initiated, altering the behavior of the cell (see cell signaling). Some CD proteins do not play a role in cell signaling, but have other functions, such as cell adhesion. CD116/GM-CSFR is the alpha subunit of the heterodimeric receptor for colony stimulating factor 2, a cytokine which controls the production, differentiation, and function of granulocytes and macrophages. The encoded protein is a member of the cytokine family of receptors. CD116/GM-CSFR is found in the pseudoautosomal region (PAR) of the X and Y chromosomes.
