RANTES (acronym for Regulated upon Activation, Normal T-cell Expressed, and presumably Secreted) is a member of the beta (C-C) chemokine subfamily and is predominantly produced from T cells and platelets. RANTES has been shown to be a chemoattractant factor for monocytes, CD4+/CD45RO+ T lymphocytes and basophils. It has also been shown to induce the proliferation and activation of killer cells and may act as a HIV suppressive factor.

Recombinant corresponding to aa24-91 from human RANTES, fused to 6x His-tag at N-terminal, expressed in E. coli.

Suitable for use in Western Blot as a control. Other applications not tested.
