Technical Data
Monocyte Chemotactic Protein-1 (MCP-1), Recombinant, Human
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant MCP-1 comprises a 76 amino acid fragment (24-99) corresponding to the mature MCP-1 protein and is expressed in E. coli with an amino-terminal hexahistidine tag.

MCP-1 is a member of the CC subgroup of the chemokine superfamily. It is produced by a variety of cell types including monocytes, lymphocytes, endothelial cells and fibroblasts after stimulation by any inflammatory mediator. MCP-1 acts as a potent chemoattractant and is thought to play an important role in the inflammatory response of blood monocytes, tissue macrophages and natural killer cells. Its expression has been documented in disorders characterized by mononuclear cell infiltrates, suggesting that it may contribute to the inflammatory component of diseases such as atherosclerosis, multiple sclerosis, or rheumatoid arthritis.

Suitable for use in ELISA Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months 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.
