CSF1R

Colony-stimulating factor 1 (CSF1) and interleukin-34 (IL-34) are functional ligands of the CSF1 receptor (CSF1R) and thus are key regulators of the monocyte/macrophage lineage. CSF1, also known as M-CSF, regulates the survival, proliferation, differentiation, and chemotaxis of cells of the monocyte/macrophage lineage. It is produced by multiple cell types, including monocytes/macrophages, endothelial cells, fibroblasts, and bone marrow stromal cells. The biological effects of CSF1 are mediated by a single CSF1 receptor (CSF1R), which is encoded by the c-fms proto-oncogene. Ligand binding to CSF1R in macrophages triggers multiple signal transduction pathways resulting in activation of AKT and cAMP responsive element–binding protein (CREB) and mitogen-activated protein kinase[1]. Interestingly, high levels of CSF1 have been implicated in the patophysiology of Alzheimer's disease[2].
