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-2 is an 8.9 kDa protein containing 76 amino acid residues including the four highly conserved cysteine residues present in the CC chemokines.
Mouse Ccl8 expressed in E.coli
CAT# CSC-CTK0744-20 (20 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0744-100 (100 μg)
Greater than 99% as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis.
Determined by its ability to chemoattract human peripheral blood monocytes using a concentration range of 10.0-100.0 ng/ml.
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Lyophilized from a sterile-filtered solution with no additives.
Please centrifuge product briefly before opening the vial. Reconstitute in sterile, ultra-pure water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. This solution can be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at -20°C for future use.
Storage & Stability
The lyophilized powder, though stable at room temperature for up to 3 weeks, is best stored desiccated at -20°C. Reconstituted MCP-2 should be used immediately or stored in undiluted working aliquots at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.
