Technical Data
RANTES, Recombinant, Rat (C-C Motif Chemokine 5, Ccl5, SIS-delta, Small-inducible Cytokine A5, Scya5, T-cell-specific protein RANTES)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
RANTES is a protein that has been shown to be a chemoattractant for peripheral blood monocytes. It appears to selectively attract T cells of the CD4+/CD45RO+ phenotype in vitro. Rat RANTES is a 7.9kD protein containing 69aa residues.

Recombinant corresponding to rat RANTES expressed in E. coli.
