Rabbit anti Human MCP-2 antibody recognizes human MCP-2 (Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein 2), otherwise known as CCL8, a 76 amino acid CC chemokine originally isolated from the human osteosarcoma cell line MG-63, which is expressed at highest levels in peripheral blood cells and the small intestine.
MCP-2 acts as a chemoattractant for monocytes, lymphocytes, eosinophils and basophils, due to its ability to bind to the common MCP receptor, chemokine (C-C motif) receptor 2 (CCR2), and also CCR1 and CCR3. Proteolytic cleavage of MCP-2 into the NH2-Terminally truncated form, MCP-2 (6-76), results in the loss of chemotactic activity, forming a functional C-C chemokine inhibitor, which may be important during inflammatory responses.
