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.

Target Species
Product Form
Purified IgG conjugated to Biotin - lyophilized
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.
Antiserum Preparation
Antisera to human RANTES were raised by repeated immunisations of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG prepared by affinity chromatography.
Buffer Solution
Phosphate buffered saline
Preservative Stabilisers
None present
Carrier Free
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.

Where this product has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the product for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
This biotinylated human RANTES antibody may be used in a direct ELISA or as the detection reagent in a sandwich ELISA with our purified human RANTES antibody (AHP340G) as the capture reagent and recombinant human RANTES (PHP062) as the standard.
Western Blotting
This antibody may be used in Western Blotting under either reducing or non-reducing conditions with recombinant human RANTES (PHP062) as the positive control.
