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. MCP-1 is linked 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.

Target Species
Product Form
Purified IgG conjugated to Biotin - lyophilized
Reconstitute with 0.5ml sterile PBS containing 1% Bovine Serum Albumin.
Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution.
For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended.
Antiserum Preparation
Antisera to human MCP-1 were raised by repeated immunisations of rabbitts with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG prepared by affinity chromatography.
Buffer Solution
Phosphate buffered saline
Preservative Stabilisers
None present.
Carrier Free
Recombinant human MCP-1 ( PHP061).
Approx. Protein Concentrations
IgG concentration 0.1 mg/ml after reconstitution.
For research purposes only
12 months from date of despatch

Prior to reconstitution store at -20°C.
After reconstitution store at -20°C.

This product should be stored undiluted. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
