Murine macrophage/monocyte chemotactic protein-5 (MCP-5) is a member of the beta-chemokine family (C-C) of cytokines. This chemokine is strongly chemotactic for human monocytes and murine peritoneal macrophages, but is not active on mouse neutrophils and shows only a weak response on mouse eosinophils at high concentrations. Murine MCP-5 is a peptide of 9.2kD that consists of 82 amino acid residues.
Catalog #M2750-19B
Source E. coli
Form Lyophilized protein with no additives.
Stability The lyophilized murine MCP-5, though stable at room temperature, is best stored desiccated below 0°C. Reconstituted murine MCP-5 should be stored in working aliquots at -20°C.
Purity Greater than 99% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses. Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng perug of (1EU/ug) of murine MCP-5.
Reconstitution The lyophilized murine MCP-5 is soluble in water and most aqueous buffers. The lyophilized protein can be reconstituted in water to a concentration of 1.0 mg/ml. This solution can be diluted into other buffered solutions or stored at -20°C for future use.
Biological Activity The biological activity of murine MCP-5 was determined by a chemotaxis assay using human peripheral blood monocytes. Significant chemotaxis was achieved using a concentration of 50 ng/ml.
Usage For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
