Gene: CSF2 (colony stimulating factor 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CSF2
Name: colony stimulating factor 2
Description: Exhibits cytokine activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor stimulus; myeloid leukocyte differentiation; and positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process. Localizes to the extracellular space and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Implicated in acute myeloid leukemia; juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia; neutropenia; pulmonary alveolar proteinosis; and visceral leishmaniasis. Biomarker of asthma; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; and temporal arteritis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
