What does G-CDF mean?
- Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor
- Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor is a colony-stimulating factor hormone. G-CSF is also known as colony-stimulating factor 3. It is a glycoprotein, growth factor and cytokine produced by a number of different tissues to stimulate the bone marrow to produce granulocytes and stem cells. G-CSF then stimulates the bone marrow to release them into the blood. G-CSF also stimulates the survival, proliferation, differentiation, and function of neutrophil precursors and mature neutrophils. G-CSF regulates them using Janus kinase /signal transducer and activator of transcription and Ras /mitogen-activated protein kinase and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase /protein kinase B signal transduction pathway.
