  • Function

    Chemoattractant for blood monocytes, memory T-helper cells and eosinophils. Causes the release of histamine from basophils and activates eosinophils. Binds to CCR1, CCR3, CCR4 and CCR5. One of the major HIV-suppressive factors produced by CD8+ T-cells. Recombinant RANTES protein induces a dose-dependent inhibition of different strains of HIV-1, HIV-2, and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV). The processed form RANTES(3-68) acts as a natural chemotaxis inhibitor and is a more potent inhibitor of HIV-1-infection. The second processed form RANTES(4-68) exhibits reduced chemotactic and HIV-suppressive activity compared with RANTES(1-68) and RANTES(3-68) and is generated by an unidentified enzyme associated with monocytes and neutrophils.
  • Tissue specificity

    T-cell and macrophage specific.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the intercrine beta (chemokine CC) family.
  • Post-translational

    N-terminal processed form RANTES(3-68) is produced by proteolytic cleavage, probably by DPP4, after secretion from peripheral blood leukocytes and cultured sarcoma cells.
    The identity of the O-linked saccharides at Ser-27 and Ser-28 are not reported in PubMed:1380064. They are assigned by similarity.

Customer reviews and Q&As


According to the RANTES uniprot file here (http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/P13501) the signal peptide cleaved in mature RANTES is amino acids 1-23. The resulting cleaved form amino acids 24-91 is 7.9 kDa. According to the same uniprot file, the protein can homodimerize, and a dimer of the cleaved form would be 15.8 kDa. My interpretation is that this 15.8 kDa homodimer is the band seen in the western blot for ab189841.
