  • Function
    Chemotactic factor that attracts monocytes and basophils but not neutrophils or eosinophils. Augments monocyte anti-tumor activity. Has been implicated in the pathogenesis of diseases characterized by monocytic infiltrates, like psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis or atherosclerosis. May be involved in the recruitment of monocytes into the arterial wall during the disease process of atherosclerosis.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the intercrine beta (chemokine CC) family.
  • Post-translational
    Processing at the N-terminus can regulate receptor and target cell selectivity. Deletion of the N-terminal residue converts it from an activator of basophil to an eosinophil chemoattractant.

Thank you for your question regarding ab8101. The molecular weight of predicted mouse MCP-1 is 12 kDa. The expressed protein has a molecular weight of 12-25 kDa. Variable O-linked glycosylation gives rise to the variation in molecular weight.

The molecular weight of predicted mouse MCP-1 is 12 kDa. The expressed protein has a molecular weight of 12-25 kDa. Variable O-linked glycosylation gives rise to the variation in molecular weight.

The antibody reacts with murine JE / MCP-1, but it has not yet been tested for use with paraffin embedded tissue.
