Monocyte Chemotactic Protein-4 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated, Polypeptide chain containing 75 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 8.6 kDa. The MCP-4 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 13 (CCL13 / MCP-4) is a small cytokine belonging to the CC chemokine family. The MCP-4 gene is located on human chromosome 17 within a large cluster of other CC chemokines. MCP-4 induces chemotaxis in monocytes, eosinophils, T lymphocytes, and basophils by binding cell surface G-protein linked chemokine receptors such as CCR2, CCR3 and CCR5. Activity of the MCP-4 chemokine has been implicated in allergic reactions such as asthma. MCP-4 can be induced by the inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1 and TNF-a.

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The protein was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) sterile solution in 20mM PB, pH 7.4, 130mM NaCl.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized MCP-4 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized MCP-4 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution MCP-4 should be stored at 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.
