What does MCSF mean?
- Macrophage colony-stimulating factor
- Macrophage colony-stimulating factor, or M-CSF, is a secreted cytokine which influences hematopoietic stem cells to differentiate into macrophages or other related cell types. Eukaryotic cells also produce M-CSF in order to combat intercellular viral infection. M-CSF binds to the Colony stimulating factor 1 receptor. It may also be involved in development of the placenta.
