Technical Data
Macrophage Derived Chemokine, Recombinant, Mouse (MDC)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant corresponding to 68aa from mouse Macrophage Derived Chemokine expressed in E. coli.

Molecular Weight:

Biological Activity:
The biological activity of MDC was determined by measuring its ability to chemoattract total murine T cells. A concentration range of 10-100ng/ml is found to produce significant chemotaxis. MDC is a member of the b chemokine (C-C) family. MDC is produced by macrophages and monocyte-derived dendritic cells, but is not produced by monocytes, NK cells, or cell lines of epithelial, endothelial, or fibroblast origin.

Endotoxin: ~0.1ng/ug

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with sterile dH2O. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. 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.

Molecular Weight:
Purity: ~98% (SDS-PAGE, HPLC)
Concentration: Not determined
Form: Supplied as a lyophilized powder. Reconstitute with sterile dH2O to 0.1-1mg/ml.
