    • Recombinant Pig CSF1-Fc is a recombinant fusion protein of porcine macrophage colony-stimulating factor (CSF1) and the Fc region of porcine IgG1a.

      Macrophage colony-stimulating factor (CSF1) is the main regulator of macrophage differentiation in all vertebrates (mammals, birds and fish). Mutations in CSF1 and CSF1 receptor (CSF1-R) genes support the view that CSF1-dependent macrophages are essential for normal development and homeostasis. Therefore, numerous potential therapeutic applications of CSF1 have been envisaged (Gow et al. 2010), (Hume et al. 2012). Recombinant CSF1 has been extensively used in studies of macrophage biology, in vitro, to drive the production of macrophages from bone marrow progenitors in culture and to promote the maturation of monocytes (Schroder et al. 2012).

      CSF1 has diverged between species, and there is limited cross reactivity between mouse and human. However, the recombinant pig CSF1-Fc protein is active in mouse experiments. The bioactive CSF1 molecule is only 150 amino acids, and when injected, has a short half-life in circulation. The fusion protein of pig CSF1 with the Fc region of pig IgG1a was produced in order to extend the half-life, permitting analysis of the role of the protein in macrophage homeostasis and function. The Fc component had no independent biological activity. And the administration of CSF1-Fc in mice produced a large increase in blood monocytes, and in macrophage numbers throughout the body. The protein was also shown to be safe and efficacious when injected into pigs (Gow et al. 2014).
