Anti-RANTES antibody produced in goat

affinity isolated antibody, lyophilized powder




recombinant human RANTES expressed in E. coli.

General description

RANTES (Regulated upon Activation, Normal T cell Expressed and Secreted; CCL5) is a chemokine that brings T cells, monocytes, eosinophils, NK cells, dendritic cells and mast cells to the site of infection or inflammation. RANTES has an unusual kinetic profile and is secreted 3-5 days after the activation of the T cells. It also exhibits antimicrobial activity by inducing the production of nitric oxide in macrophages. The main function of RANTES is mediated by CCR5, CCR1, CCR3 and other receptors. The expression of RANTES is regulated mainly by JAK/STAT and NF-κB pathways. Polymorphisms in the gene encoding RANTES are implicated in artherosclerosis, multiple sclerosis, HIV infection, diabetes, inflammatory diseases of the lung, renal disease and systemic lupus erythematosus. In addition, RANTES is a potential prognostic factor to track the progression of stage II breast cancer
Anti-RANTES antibody specifically recognizes human RANTES. The antibody shows ~40% cross-reactivity with mouse RANTES and canine RANTES, ~20% cross-reactivity with cotton rat RANTES, and ~1% cross-reactivity with feline RANTES.

Physical form

Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in phosphate buffered saline with 5% trehalose.


Based on ELISA, the antibody shows ~40% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse RANTES, ~20% cross-reactivity with recombinant cotton rat RANTES, and ~1% cross-reactivity with recombinant feline RANTES.


Anti-RANTES antibody may be used for immunoblotting at a working concentration of 0.1 μg/ml. For immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence, a working concentration of 5-15 μg/ml may be used. The antibody is suitable for neutralization reactions (ND50 is 0.1-0.4 μg/ml).
