Biological descriptionHighly potent and selective CCR3 antagonist (IC50 = 4 nM). Shows >2500-fold selectivity over CCR7, CXCR1, CXCR2, C4aR and LTD4 receptors. Inhibits Ca2+ mobilization induced by eotaxin, eotaxin-2 and MCP-4 (IC50 values are 38, 35, and 20 nM, respectively). Also inhibits eosinophil chemotaxis.
Chemical nameN-(1-Naphthalenylcarbonyl)-4-nitro-L-phenylalanine methyl ester
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store under Desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO to 100 mM
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
