Macrophage/monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) plays an important role in the inflammatory response of blood monocytes and tissue macrophages. Rat MCP-1 is a 14.1kD protein containing 125 amino acid residues.

Biological Activity: The maximal chemotactic activity of rat MCP-1 on human monocytes was achieved at 100 ng/ml.

Responding Cells (partial list): Monocytes/macrophages

Concentration Range for most in vitro applications: 10.0-100 ng/ml

Storage and Stability:
Reconstitute to nominal volume by adding sterile ddH2O, aliquot and store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 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

Molecular Weight:
14.1kD
Source: Recombinant, Rat (E. coli)
Purity: Purity: 97% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses. Endotoxin: < 0.1 ng/ug
Form: Supplied as a sterile filtered lyophilized powder. Reconstitute in sterile ddH2Oto a concentration of 0.1-1mg/ml. Further dilutions can be made with aqeuous buffers.
