GM-CSF (Granulocyte-Macrophage colony-stimulating factor) also known as colony stimulating factor 2 (CSF2), is a 14.6kDa monomeric hematopoietic growth factor secreted by macrophages, activated T-cells, B-cells, mast cells, NK cells, endothelial cells and fibroblasts. It is a pleiotropic cytokine that stimulates the growth and differentiation of granulocytes, macrophages, erythrocytes, early megakaryocytes and eosinophil from bone marrow progenitor cells. GM-CSF activates effector functions of myeloid cells, thereby linking adaptive and innate immunity and in turn may boost immune-independent tumor progression. GM-CSF also plays a vital role in immune regulation and hematopoiesis.
