Rabbit anti Human MCP-1 antibody recognizes human MCP-1 (Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein 1), otherwise known as CCL2, a 76 amino acid CC chemokine which acts as a chemoattractant for monocytes, basophils, activated T cells and NK cells, through binding with the seven-transmembrane G protein-coupled receptor, CCR2.

The recruitment of mononuclear cells by MCP-1, has established this chemokine as an important factor in innate immunity, implicated in the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, uveitis and bronchial asthma. Increasing studies have also linked MCP-1 with the polarization of activated T cells into the T helper 2 (Th2) subset, revealing a role for MCP-1 in the adaptive immune response.

Rabbit anti Human MCP-1 antibody has been successfully used as a detection reagent in the development of a sensitive ELISA assay for the evaluation of MCP-1 expression in conjunction with Mouse anti Human MCP-1, clone 2.2-4A4-1A11 (MCA2486) and recombinant human MCP-1 (PHP061) as a calibration reagent.
