MaxDiscovery™ Rat GM-CSF ELISA Test Kit

Product Description
The MaxDiscovery™ Rat GM-CSF ELISA Test Kit is designed for quantitative determination of the concentration of rat GM-CSF in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatant. Rat mature granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) is a polypeptide of 127 amino acids with one potential N-linked glycosylation site and two intramolecular disulfide bonds. Natural rat GM-CSF is a monomeric glycoprotein with an apparent molecular mass ranging from 27 - 44 kDa. Rat GM-CSF shares 69% and 62% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and human GM-CSF, respectively. While rat and mouse GM-CSF have reciprocal cross-species activity, they are not active on human cells. GM-CSF is produced by a number of type II alveolar cells, renal mesangial cells, and endothelial cells. It is a pleiotrophic cytokine that stimulates the proliferation, differentiation, migration and survival of hematopoietic progenitor cells of the neutrophil, eosinophil, macrophage, megakaryocyte and erythroid lineages. GM-CSF activates the effector functions of mature neutrophils, eosinophils and macrophages. In concert with IL-4 and other cytokines, GM-CSF induces dendritic cell formation and stimulates their ability to present antigens to cells of the immune system. In addition, GM-CSF inhibits Langerhans cell IL-12 production, thus promoting a generalized Th2-type response. Rat GM-CSF shares 69% and 62% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and human GM-CSF, respectively. While rat and mouse GM-CSFs have reciprocal cross-species activity, they are not active on human cells. Normal mouse and rat sera GM-CSF is undetectable (less than 15.6 pg/mL) in the absence of underlying pathology. In mice and humans, the high-affinity receptor for GM-CSF is composed of a 50 kDa ligand binding alpha subunit (GMR) and a 120 kDa signal transducing beta subunit. Furthermore, syndecan-2 is also reported to be a co-receptor for GM-CSF.

Promising Class of New Cancer Drugs Cause Memory Loss in Mice
New findings from The Rockefeller University suggest that the original version of BET inhibitors causes molecular changes in mouse neurons, and can lead to memory loss in mice that receive it.
Electrical Control of Cancer Cells
Research led by scientists at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) has revealed a new electrical mechanism that can control these switches.
Signature of Microbiomes Linked to Schizophrenia
Studying microbiomes in throat may help identify causes and treatments of brain disorder.
Inflammation Linked to Colon Cancer Metastasis
A new Arizona State University research study led by Biodesign Institute executive director Raymond DuBois has identified for the first time the details of how inflammation triggers colon cancer cells to spread to other organs, or metastasize.
Structural Discoveries Could Aid in Better Drug Design
Scientists have uncovered the structural details of how some proteins interact to turn two different signals into a single integrated output.
Determining the Age of Fingerprints
Watch the imprint of a tire track in soft mud, and it will slowly blur, the ridges of the pattern gradually flowing into the valleys. Researchers have tested the theory that a similar effect could be used to give forensic scientists a way to date fingerprints.
Genetic Overlapping in Multiple Autoimmune Diseases May Suggest Common Therapies
CHOP genomics expert leads analysis of genetic architecture, with eye on repurposing existing drugs.
Surprising Mechanism Behind Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Uncovered
Now, scientists at TSRI have discovered that the important human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus, develops resistance to this drug by “switching on” a previously uncharacterized set of genes.
Tissue Bank Pays Dividends for Brain Cancer Research
Checking what’s in the bank – the Brisbane Breast Bank, that is – has paid dividends for UQ cancer researchers.
Researchers Publish Landmark “Basket Study”
Researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) have announced results from the first published basket study, a new form of clinical trial design that explores responses to drugs based on the specific mutations in patients’ tumors rather than where their cancer originated.
