MCP-5 Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 82 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 9.3kDa. The MCP5 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
MCP-5 (CCL12) is a cloned mouse CC chemokine most closely related to human MCP1 (66% amino acid sequence identity in the mature protein). MCP5 is expressed constitutively in the thymus and the lymph nodes. Under inflammatory conditions, moreover CCL12 expression is induced in activated macrophages and mast cells. The mouse MCP1 gene is mapped to the CC chemokine cluster on chromosome 11. Recombinant CCL12 is a potent chemoattractant for monocytes and lymphocytes but not neutrophils. At high concentrations, MCP-5 also chemoattracts eosinophils. CCL12 is a functional ligand for CCR2.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a 0.2
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized MCP5 in sterile 18M?-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized CCL12 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution MCP5 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.
