  • 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.

The proteins are sold lyophilized, I am sorry we do not sell them reconstituted. Also, please note that these antibodies and protein are not tested for this particular application, and so will regrettably not be covered by the 6 month guarantee for this purpose.

I hope this will be helpful. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
