Technical Data
Macrophage Inflammatory Protein 2, Recombinant, Mouse (MIP-2)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant corresponding to mouse MIP-2 expressed in E. coli.

Molecular Weight:

Biological Activity:
The biological activity was determined by measuring the dose dependent mobilization of intracellular calcium (calcium flux) with human neutrophils. Significant calcium mobilization is observed with >5ng/ml of recombinant mouse MIP-2. The optimal concentration should be determined for each specific application.

Endotoxin: ~0.1ng/ug

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with sterile ddH2O. 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: ~95% (SDS-PAGE)
Concentration: Not determined
Form: Supplied as a lyophilized powder. BSA free. Reconstitute with sterile ddH2O to 0.1-1mg/ml.
