The Quantikine Canine MCP-1 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure canine MCP-1 in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant canine MCP-1 and antibodies raised against the recombinant protein. Results obtained for naturally occurring canine MCP-1 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural canine MCP-1.
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.
The recovery of canine MCP-1 spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.
Average % Recovery
Cell Culture Supernates (n=4)
EDTA Plasma (n=4)
Heparin Plasma (n=4)
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing or spiked with high concentrations of canine MCP-1 in each matrix were diluted with Calibrator Diluent and assayed.
Preparation and Storage
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
CCL2/JE/MCP-1, is a chemokine that binds the receptor CCR2 and induces the chemoattraction of mononuclear cells. It induces the activation of monocytes, NK cells, lymphocytes, and basophils. Additionally, CCL2 promotes Th2 polarization in CD4+ T cells, and CCL2-mediated recruitment of monocytes to sites of inflammation contributes to disease severity in atherosclerosis, multiple sclerosis, and allergic asthma. Endogenous proteolytic trimming of CCL2 at the N-terminus, including the N-terminal pyrrolidone carboxylic acid-modified glutamine, downregulates activity but not receptor binding.
