Description: CD115 or Colony-Stimulating Factor-1 Receptor (CSF-1R) is expressed on cells committed to the monocyte lineage and osteoclasts. CSF-1R is a disulfide-linked homodimer, which upon binding of its ligand, CSF-1, undergoes tyrosine autophosphorylation and subsequently, phosphorylates other membrane-proximal downstream targets which results in cytoskeletal remodeling, gene transcription and protein translation. CSF-1R activation promotes the survival, proliferation and differentiation of mononuclear phagocytes and the spreading and motility of macrophages. In osteoclasts, CSF-1R synergizes with RANKL to regulate the differentiation of mononuclear phagocytes to osteoclasts.
Applications Reported: This 12-3A3-1B10 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis, immunoprecipitation, immunoblotting (WB), and immunohistochemical staining.
Applications Tested: This 12-3A3-1B10 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
The protein encoded by this gene is the receptor for colony stimulating factor 1, a cytokine which controls the production, differentiation, and function of macrophages. This receptor mediates most if not all of the biological effects of this cytokine. Ligand binding activates the receptor kinase through a process of oligomerization and transphosphorylation. The encoded protein is a tyrosine kinase transmembrane receptor and member of the CSF1/PDGF receptor family of tyrosine-protein kinases. Mutations in this gene have been associated with a predisposition to myeloid malignancy. The first intron of this gene contains a transcriptionally inactive ribosomal protein L7 processed pseudogene oriented in the opposite direction.
