Technical Data
Macrophage Inflammatory Protein 1 beta, Recombinant, Human (MIP-1b, CCL4)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: RT
Human macrophage inflammatory protein-1 (MIP-1) is an 7.6kD protein containing 69 amino acid residues. It plays an important role in the inflammatory response of blood monocytes and tissue macrophages.

Source: E. coli

Form: Lyophilized protein with no additives.

Stability: The lyophilized protein, though stable at room temperature, is best stored desiccated below 0C.

Purity: Greater than 99% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis. Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng perug of MIP-1.

Reconstitution: The lyophilized MIP-1 is soluble in water and most aqueous buffers. The lyophilized MIP-1 can be reconstituted in water to a concentration of 0.1 mg/ml. This solution can be diluted into other buffered solutions or stored frozen for future use.

Biological Activity: The maximal chemotactic activity of human MIP-1 on human blood monocytes was achieved at 50 ng/ml.

Molecular Weight: 7.6kD

Responding Cells (partial list): Monocytes

Concentration Range for most in vitro applications: 5.0-50 ng/ml
