  • Product overview

    Abcam’s MDC Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human MDC in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human MDC coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and MDC present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human MDC antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of MDC bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

    Get results in 90 minutes with Human MDC ELISA Kit (CCL22) (ab179885) from our SimpleStep ELISA® range.

  • FunctionMay play a role in the trafficking of activated/effector T-lymphocytes to inflammatory sites and other aspects of activated T-lymphocyte physiology. Chemotactic for monocytes, dendritic cells and natural killer cells. Mild chemoattractant for primary activated T-lymphocytes and a potent chemoattractant for chronically activated T-lymphocytes but has no chemoattractant activity for neutrophils, eosinophils, and resting T-lymphocytes. Binds to CCR4. Processed forms MDC(3-69), MDC(5-69) and MDC(7-69) seem not be active.
  • Tissue specificityHighly expressed in macrophage and in monocyte-derived dendritic cells, and thymus. Also found in lymph node, appendix, activated monocytes, resting and activated macrophages. Lower expression in lung and spleen. Very weak expression in small intestine. In lymph node expressed in a mature subset of Langerhans' cells (CD1a+ and CD83+). Expressed in Langerhans' cell histiocytosis but not in dermatopathic lymphadenopathy. Expressed in atopic dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis skin, and psoriasis, in both the epidermis and dermis.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the intercrine beta (chemokine CC) family.
  • Post-translational
    The N-terminal processed forms MDC(3-69), MDC(5-69) and MDC(7-69) are produced by proteolytic cleavage after secretion from monocyte derived dendrocytes.

  • Data shows secreation of MDC (CCL22) by human macrophages isolated by negative selection in culture for 3 days.

    Specificity shown by selective secretion by M2 macrophages (MSCF + IL4) compared to the others subtypes (M0 = MCSF, M1 = MSCF + IFNg, DEX = MCSF + Dexamethasone, IL10 = MCSF + IL10, TGFb = MCSF + TGFb).

Thank you for contacting us.

We unfortunately do not have these kits available for human samples. I however have contacted the product manager and asked them if these products are in pipeline, I will get back to you once I get it confirmed. Read More
