Rabbit anti Mouse MCP-1 antibody
recognizes mouse monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1), also known as CCL2, Small-inducible cytokine A2 or Platelet-derived growth factor-inducible protein JE. Mouse MCP-1 is a 148 amino acid ~16 kDa secreted monocyte chemotactic factor
The chemokine MCP-1 is expressed by a range of cells including monocytes, vascular endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, glomerular mesangial cells and osteoblasts.
MCP-1 plays an important role in the inflammatory response of blood monocytes and tissue macrophages (Conti and DiGioacchino 2001
- Target Species
- Product Form
- Purified IgG - lyophilised
- Reconstitute with 0.1ml distilled water
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.
N.B. For functional studies do not add sodium azide
- Antiserum Preparation
- Antisera to mouse MCP-1 were raised by repeated immunisations of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared from whole serum by affinity chromatography.
- Buffer Solution
- Phosphate buffered saline
- Preservative Stabilisers
- None present
- Recombinant mouse MCP-1 (PMP35)
- Approx. Protein Concentrations
- IgG concentration 1.0 mg/ml
- Prior to reconstitution store at +4oC. Following reconstitution store at -20oC.
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.
- 12 months from date of reconstitution.
- Entrez Gene
- GO Terms
regulation of vascular endothelial growth factor production
positive regulation of macrophage chemotaxis
negative regulation of angiogenesis
positive regulation of immune complex clearance by monocytes and macrophages
