Description

General description

The MCP proteins belong to the CC chemokine family, and signal through CCR2 and, with the exception of MCP-1, other CCR receptors. The MCP proteins chemoattract and activate monocytes, activated T cells, basophils, NK cells, and immature dendritic cells. The MCP family cross reacts across species. Recombinant human MCP-1 is an 8.6 kDa protein containing 76 amino acid residues including the four highly conserved cysteine residues present in the CC chemokines.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1/monocyte chemotactic and activating factor (MCP-1/MCAF) is a member of CC chemokine family. It triggers the activation of monocytes by triggering degranulation as well as respiratory burst activity in monocytes. It facilitates monocytes in inhibiting or enhancing the growth of specific brain tumor cell lines. It is found to be overexpressed in cases of atherosclerosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and delayed hypersensitivity reactions. It is also implicated in Kawasaki disease.

Physical form

Lyophilized with no additives.

Reconstitution

Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 week. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a stabilizer (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.
