Rabbit anti Mouse MCP-2 antibody recognizes mouse MCP-2 (Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein 2), otherwise known as CCL8, a 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, and signals through binding 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 CC chemokine inhibitor, which may be important during inflammatory responses.

Antiserum to mouse MCP-2 was raised by repeated immunisation of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared by affinity chromatography.
Buffer Solution
Phosphate buffered saline
Preservative Stabilisers
None present
Immunogen
Recombinant mouse MCP-2
Approx. Protein Concentrations
IgG concentration 0.1mg/ml after reconstitution
