  • Product overview

    MCP2 (CCL8) in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of MCP2 protein in mouse serum, plasma, cell culture supernatants, and tissue extracts.

    The 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. TMB substrate is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.

  • Notes

    MCP2 is a chemotactic factor that attracts monocytes. Chemokines and their receptors, in conjunction with adhesion molecules and their ligands, provide cues to enable tissue-specific homing of T cells in the steady state and during inflammation. Mouse MCP specifically induces migration of a population of recently activated, highly differentiated TH2 cells enriched in interleukin 5 (IL-5) and the IL-25 receptor (IL-25R), cytokines implicated in eosinophilic inflammation; as well as tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and OX40, molecules associated with inflammatory TH2 cells. Using a model of atopic dermatitis, we demonstrate a pathologic role for CCR8 and mouse CCL8, but not for the TH2-associated chemokine receptor CCR4 or the previously known mouse CCR8 chemokine ligand mouse CCL1 (TCA3), in mediating chronic cutaneous allergic inflammation.

  • Research areas

  • 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.

  • The 1X dilution was 0.025% for the mouse serum and all of the mouse plasmas. Interpolated data values (mean +/- SD, n = 2) are graphed.

  • Titration of mouse stimulated (100 ng/mL LPS + 50 ng/mL PMA, 3 days (+)) lung supernatant, unstimulated (-) lung supernatant, stimulated (5 µg/mL LPS, 6 Days (+)) spleen supernatant, and unstimulated (-) spleen supernatant. A blank cell culture media control was also analyzed, and was negative. The 1X dilution was 10.0% for the stimulated supernatants, and 20.0% for the unstimulated supernatants. Interpolated data values (mean +/- SD, n = 2) are graphed.
