Recombinant human MCP-4 is a non-glycosylated protein, containing 74 amino acids, with a molecular weight of 8.5 kDa. Purity is typically greater than 95% and endotoxin level less than 1 EU/ug.
The expected biological activity (ED50) is determined by the ability to chemoattract human monocytes and is typically between 7-75 ng/mL. The specific activity of this protein is 1x10^5 units/mg.
Reconstitute using sterile water at 0.1 mg/mL and centrifuge prior to opening vial. Gently pipet solution down the sides of the vial. DO NOT VORTEX sample. Store reconstituted material at -20°C and add 0.1% BSA for additional stability.

Monocyte Chemotactic Protein 4 (MCP-4), also called CCL13, is induced by inflammatory proteins such as IL-1 and TNFalpha. MCP-4 is a ligand for three different G protein coupled receptors, CCR2, CCR3 and CCR5. MCP-4 activates signaling in monocytes, T lymphocytes, eosinophils and basophils and this signaling is associated with the allergic response.
