Technical Data
CCR2, NT (Chemokine Receptor 2, CC-CCR-2, CKR2)
CCR2, C-C chemokine receptor type 2, is a G protein-coupled, seven-transmembrane domain receptor protein. It has been found to be a monocyte chemoattractant protein 1(MCP-1)-specific receptor (1,2). Activation of the CCR2b isoform by MCP-1 binding has been shown to trigger intracelluluar Ca2+ flux and activation of the Jak/Stat pathway (3). A variety of chemokine receptors, including CCR2, can serve as HIV fusion co-factors (4), making elucidating their specific functions important for more fully describing the process of HIV infection.

Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry, Immunoprecipitation, Immunohistochemistry and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Flow Cytometry: 1:25
Immunohistochemistry: 1:100
Immunocytochemistry: 1:100
Immunoprecipitation: 1:50
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
