Mouse anti Sheep GM-CSF, clone 3C2 recognizes both recombinant and native ovine Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, also known GM-CSF or CSF, a 16.3kDa cytokine responsible for the stimulation and growth of cells from granulocyte, macrophage, eosinophil and erythrocyte hematopoietic precursor cell linages.

Mouse anti Sheep GM-CSF, clone 3C2 has is of particular interest as it has been shown to reconize GM-CSF in cattle while other clones such as 8D8 do not crosss react with cattle..

Mouse anti Sheep GM-CSF, clone 3C2 has been reported to neutralise the activity of both recombinant ovine and native GM-CSF.

Removal of sodium azide is recommended prior to use in functional assays. Bio-Rad recommend the use of EQU003 for this purpose.
