Exodus-2 Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli as a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 110 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 12 kDa. The CCL21 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 21 (CCL21) is a small cytokine belonging to the CC chemokine family. This chemokine is also known as 6Ckine (because it has six conserved cysteine residues instead of the four cysteines typical to chemokines), exodus-2, and secondary lymphoid-tissue chemokine (SLC). CCL21 is expressed predominantly in the lymph nodes and, in contrast to other CC chemokines, is chemotactic for lymphocytes. The gene for CCL21 is located on human chromosome 9. CCL21 elicits its effects by binding to a cell surface chemokine receptor known as CCR7.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution in water containing 20mM Phospate buffer and 0.15M NaCl pH-7.4.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Exodus2 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions
Lyophilized Exodus-2 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution CCL21 should be storedat 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
