Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab9679 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml.
ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml.
Neutralising Use at an assay dependent dilution. To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of hRANTES (100.00 ng/ml), a concentration of 5.0 - 7.0 µg/ml of this antibody is required.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml.

Target

  • 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
    modifications
    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.

    Secreted.

  • ab9679 staining RANTES in Human skeletal muscle (gastrocnemius) tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with methacarn and blocked with 10% serum for 20 minutes at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in citrate buffer (pH 6) and tris buffer (pH 8). Samples were incubated with primary antibody (2μg/ml) for 1 hour at 25°C. An undiluted HRP-conjugated Mouse anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.

  • ab9679 staining RANTES in human breast invasive ductal carcinoma tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue underwent heat mediated antigen retrieval in sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0). The primary antibody was used at 2.0 ug/ml and incubated with sample at 4°C overnight. A HRP-labeled polymer detection system was used with an AEC chromogen.

  • Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human breast cancer tissue stained for RANTES using ab9679 at 1/150 dilution in immunohistochemical analysis. Goat anti-Rabbit HRP was used as the secondary antibody. Heat mediated antigen retrieval using EDTA at pH 9 was used before commencing with the IHC protocol.
