Description: The 5D3-F7 antibody reacts with human, cynomolgus, and rhesus monkey monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), also known as monocyte chemotactic and activating factor (MCAF) and CCL2. MCP-1 is a CC chemokine which presents as a dimer. Derived from monocytes and vascular endothelial cells, it exerts chemoattractant activity on a variety of cell types, such as monocytes, basophils, T cells and NK cells via chemokine receptors such as CCR2, CCR5, and CCR10.
Applications Reported: The 5D3-F7 antibody has been reported to be useful for detection of MCP-1 in a sandwich ELISA, neutralization of MCP-1 bioactivity, intracellular staining for flow cytometric analysis, IP, and immunohistochemical staining of frozen tissue sections.
Applications Tested: The affinity purified 5D3-F7 antibody has been tested as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA for analysis of human MCP-1 in combination with the biotinylated 2H5 (13-7096) antibody for detection and recombinant human MCP-1 as the standard. A suitable range of concentrations of this antibody for ELISA capture is 1-4 µg/mL. A standard curve consisting of doubling dilutions of the recombinant standard over the range of 2000 pg/mL - 15 pg/mL should be included in each ELISA plate.
The Functional Grade purified 5D3-F7 antibody has been tested for neutralization of MCP-1 bioactivity.
Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
This gene is one of several cytokine genes clustered on the q-arm of chromosome 17. Cytokines are a family of secreted proteins involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. The protein encoded by this gene is structurally related to the CXC subfamily of cytokines. Members of this subfamily are characterized by two cysteines separated by a single amino acid. This cytokine displays chemotactic activity for monocytes and basophils but not for neutrophils or eosinophils. It has been implicated in the pathogenesis of diseases characterized by monocytic infiltrates, like psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis and atherosclerosis. It binds to chemokine receptors CCR2 and CCR4.
