Description: RANTES (Regulated on Activation, Normal T Expressed and Secreted) is an 8kD member of the C-C family of chemkines (CCL5). It is a proinflammatory chemoattractant for several cell types including CD4+ T cells, monocytes and eosinophils. In contrast to other members of the chemokine superfamily, RANTES has been observed to be downregulated upon activation in T cells. In other secreting cells, upregulation is observed in response to activation.
Applications Reported: This R6G9 antibody has been reported for use in immunoblotting (WB).
Applications Tested: This R6G9 antibody has been tested by immunoblot on lysates of LPS-activated Raw 264.7 cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 2 µg/mL. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
RANTES is a chemoattractant for blood monocytes, memory T helper cells and eosinophils. It causes the release of histamine from basophils and activates eosinophils. It binds to CCR1, CCR3, CCR4 and CCR5 and is one of the major HIV suppressive factors produced by CD8+ T cells. Recombinant RANTES protein induces a dose dependent inhibition of different strains of HIV 1, HIV 2, and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV). It is T cell and macrophage specific, induced by mitogens, and belongs to the intercrine beta (chemokine CC) family.
