  • Product overview

    MCP3 (CCL7) in vitro CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of MCP3 (CCL7) protein in mouse serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA kit has been optimized for Molecular Devices Microplate Readers. Click here for a list of recommended Microplate Readers.
    If using a Molecular Devices’ plate reader supported by SoftMax® Pro software, a preconfigured protocol for these CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA Kits is available with all the protocol and analysis settings at www.softmaxpro.org.

    The CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material. CatchPoint HRP Development Solution containing the Stoplight Red Substrate is added. During incubation, the substrate is catalyzed by HRP generating a fluorescent product. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured in a fluorescence plater reader at 530/570/590 nm Excitation/Cutoff/Emission.

  • Notes

    MCP3, also known as CCL7, belongs to the C-C chemokine family. MCP3 attracts monocytes, eosinophils, NK cells, T-lymphocytes, but not neutrophils. The ability of MCP3 to interact with various immune cell types are explained by the molecule’s ability to interact with various chemokine receptors. The chemokines known to interact with MCP3 include CCR1, CCR2, and CCR3. MCP3 also augments monocyte anti-tumor activity, and has been implicated in various studies investigating cancer metastasis.

  • Research areas
  • Function
    Chemotactic 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.

  • ELISA Protocol Summary
  • The MCP3 (CCL7) standard curve was prepared as described in Section 10. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • The 1X dilution was 25% for the mouse serum and all of the mouse plasmas. Interpolated data values (mean +/- SD, n = 2) are graphed.

  • A blank cell culture media control was also analyzed, and was negative. The 1X dilution was 3.13% for the stimulated and unstimulated Raw 264.7 supernatants, and 25.0% for the unstimulated D10.G4.1 supernatant. Interpolated data values (mean +/- SD, n = 2) are graphed.
