Macrophage Inflammatory Protein-5 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 92 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 10.1 kDa. The MIP5 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
CCL15, a new human CC chemokine, was isolated from a human fetal spleen cDNA library. CCL15 cDNA encodes a predicted 113 amino acid (aa) protein containing a putative signal peptide of 21 amino acids that is cleaved to generate a 92 aa residue mature protein. Within the CC family members, human CCL15 shares 45%, 44%, 35%, and 30% aa homology with mouse C10, human MPIF-1, human HCC-1, and mouse MIP-1?, respectively. The gene for MIP-5 is found on chromosome 17 where the genes for most of the human CC chemokines are located. Human CCL15 is expressed in T and B lymphocytes, NK cells, monocytes and monocyte-derived dendritic cells. Human MIP-5 is chemotactic for T cells and monocytes and has been shown to induce calcium flux in human CCR-1-transfected cells.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
MIP5 was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution containing 20mM PBS pH-7.4 and 100mM NaCl.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized MIP5 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized MIP-5 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution CCL15 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.
