SpecificityThis monoclonal antibody reacts with natural and recombinant human MCP 3. It does not show any cross reaction with other human cytokines or growth factors tested such as IL 1 beta, IL 8, MCAF, SAA and EGF.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Application notesELISA: Use at an assay dependent dilution.
WB: Use at a concentration of 0.5 - 2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 8.5 kDa.
This antibody can be used as a capture antibody in sandwich ELISA applications for human MCP-3 detection in combination with a monoclonal tracer/detection antibody (HRP conjugated). Suggested Capture Coating Dose: 3µg/well; Substrate:TMB.
A Western blot using an antibody concentration of 0.5-2µg/mL will allow visualization of 0.1µg/lane of human MCP-3.
Not tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
FunctionChemotactic factor that attracts monocytes and eosinophils, but not neutrophils. Augments monocyte anti-tumor activity. Also induces the release of gelatinase B. This protein can bind heparin. Binds to CCR1, CCR2 and CCR3.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the intercrine beta (chemokine CC) family.
