Immunohistochemistry analysis of MCP2 showing staining in the cytoplasm paraffin-embedded human stomach tissue (right) compared to a negative control without primary antibody (left). To expose target proteins, antigen retrieval was performed using 10mM sodium citrate (pH 6.0), microwaved for 8-15 min. Following antigen retrieval, tissues were blocked in 3% H2O2-methanol for 15 min at room temperature, washed with ddH2O and PBS, and then probed with a MCP-2 ABfinity Recombinant Rabbit Oligoclonal Antibody (710205) diluted in 3% BSA-PBS at a dilution of 1:20 for 1 hour at 37ºC in a humidified chamber. Tissues were washed extensively in PBST and detection was performed using an HRP-conjugated secondary antibody followed by colorimetric detection using a DAB kit. Tissues were counterstained with hematoxylin and dehydrated with ethanol and xylene to prep for mounting.

ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ oligoclonal antibodies comprise a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds—the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody with the specificity of a monoclonal, all delivered with the consistency only found in a recombinant antibody. While functionally the same as a polyclonal antibody—recognizing multiple epitope sites on the target and producing higher detection sensitivity for low abundance targets when compared with monoclonal antibodies—an oligoclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. This exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
Intact IgG appears on a non-reducing gel as ~150 kDa band and upon reduction generating a ~25 kDa light chain band and a ~50 kDa heavy chain.
MCP-2 (monocyte chemoattractant protein 2) belongs to the CC chemokine family. MCPs are chemotactic factor that attracts monocytes, lymphocytes, basophils and eosinophils. It is induced by IFN-gamma, mitogens, and IL1/interleukin-1. MCP-2 specifically attracts monocytes, but not neutrophils. High levels of MCP-2 are found in the small intestine, and peripheral blood cells. Intermediate levels are seen in the heart, placenta, lung, skeletal muscle, thymus, colon, ovary, spinal cord, and pancreas. Low levels are seen in the brain, liver, spleen, and prostate.
