Rabbit anti Human RANTES antibody recognizes human RANTES (regulated upon activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted), otherwise known as CCL5, a 68 amino acid CC- chemokine involved in T cell activation and cell recruitment, expressed by cytotoxic (CD8+) T cells (CTLs), macrophages, keratinocytes and endothelial cells.

RANTES acts as a chemoattractant for monocytes, CD4+/CD45RO+ memory T cells, basophils and eosinophils, thorough binding to chemokine (C-C motif) receptor 1 (CCR1), CCR3 and CCR5. Both CCR3 and CCR5 are known co-receptors for the entry of HIV viruses into target cells and the binding of RANTES to CCR3 on CTLs has been shown to enhance HIV-1-specific cytotoxicity, whilst binding to CCR5 inhibits membrane fusion and hence HIV entry.

Product Form
Purified IgG - lyophilised
Reconstitution
Reconstitute with 0.5 ml sterile PBS containing 0.1% 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.
Reconstitution
Reconstitute with 0.1 ml distilled water. For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended. NB: For functional studies do not add azide.
Antiserum Preparation
Antisera to human RANTES were raised by repeated immunisation of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared by antigen affinity chromatography.
