Recombinant Human C-C Motif Chemokine 2/CCL2/MCP-1
Recombinant Human C-C Motif Chemokine 2 is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Gln24-Thr99 is expressed. Bon Opus Cat. #CM78
BackgroundThe chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 2 (CCL2), also known as monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP)-1 and small inducible cytokine A2 (SCYA2)), is a small cytokine that belongs to the CC chemokine family responsible for monocyte attraction. Its cognate receptor, CCR2, play a critical role in regulating nociceptive processes during neuropathic pain. Both CCL2 and CCR2 are implicated in induction of autoimmunity. CCL2 recruits monocytes, memory T cells, and dendritic cells to the sites of inflammation produced by either tissue injury or infection. Recently research also showed that CCL2 might be useful as a biomarker of fibrosis as well as a target for therapeutic intervention.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 20mM PB, 150mM NaCl, pH7.4.
