The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    ELISA: Use at a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml to detect <12.5ng/ml of recombinant human MCP2.
    Neut: Use at a concentration of 0.5 - 10 µg/ml.
    WB: Use at a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml to detect 50ng/lane of recombinant human MCP2 under reducing and non-reducing conditions. Predicted molecular weight: 9 kDa.

    Human MCP2 is tested for its ability to neutralize the chemotactic activity of rhMCP2 for human monocytes. The ND50 of the antibody is defined as the concentration of antibody resulting in a one-half maximal inhibition of bioactivity of rhMCP2 that is present at a concentration just high enough to elicit a maximum response. In this bioassay 0.4ug/ml rhMCP2 was mixed with various dilutions of the antibody for 30 minutes at 22°C. After preincubation, 35ul of the antigen-antibody mixture were transferred to the lower compartment of a 96-well chemotaxis chamber. The chamber was reassembled, human monocytes were added to the top chamber and incubated at 37° for approximately 75 minutes in a humidified CO2 incubator. The chemotaxis filter was then fixed and stained. The optical density of the filter is proportional to the number of cells that migrated across the filter.

    Not tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Function
      Chemotactic factor that attracts monocytes, lymphocytes, basophils and eosinophils. May play a role in neoplasia and inflammatory host responses. This protein can bind heparin. The processed form MCP-2(6-76) does not show monocyte chemotactic activity, but inhibits the chemotactic effect most predominantly of CCL7, and also of CCL2 and CCL5 and CCL8.
    • Tissue specificity
      Highest expression found in the small intestine and peripheral blood cells. Intermediate levels seen in the heart, placenta, lung, skeletal muscle, thymus, colon, ovary, spinal cord and pancreas. Low levels seen in the brain, liver, spleen and prostate.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the intercrine beta (chemokine CC) family.
    • Post-translational
      N-terminal processed form MCP-2(6-76) is produced by proteolytic cleavage after secretion from peripheral blood monocytes.
