BD Pharmingen™
Mouse (QC Testing)
Rat IgG2a
Recombinant Mouse GM-CSF
ELISA (Routinely Tested), Intracellular staining (flow cytometry), Neutralization (Tested During Development)
1.0 mg/ml
No azide/low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, 0.2µm sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. This preparation contains no preservatives, thus it should be handled under aseptic conditions.

Recommended Assay Procedures

ELISA:  Purified Rat Anti-Mouse GM-CSF antibody (Clone MP1-22E9, Cat. No. 554403 or 554404) can be useful as a capture antibody for sandwich ELISA for measuring mouse GM-CSF protein levels.  Purified Rat Anti-Mouse GM-CSF can be paired with Biotin Rat Anti-Mouse GM-CSF (Cat. No. 554407, clone MP1-31G6) as the detection antibody, with recombinant mouse GM-CSF protein (Cat. No. 554586) as the standard. For testing mouse GM-CSF in complex biological fluids, such as serum or plasma, investigators are highly encouraged to use the BD OptEIA™ Mouse GM-CSF ELISA Set (Cat. No. 555167).

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.

The MP1-22E9 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse Granulocyte-Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor (GM-CSF). The immunogen used to generate the MP1-22E9 hybridoma was yeast-expressed recombinant mouse GM-CSF. This is a neutralizing antibody.

NA/LE refers to the culture and purification methods and buffer used to produce purified antibodies with no azide and low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, 0.2µm sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.NA/LE are perfectly suited to be used in culture or in vivo (for nonhuman studies) for functional assays — blocking, neutralizing, activation or depletion — where the presence of azide may damage cells or exogenous endotoxin may signal or activate cells.
