Detects human CCL23/MPIF‑1 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, approximately 10% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) MIP-1δ and rhHCC-1 is observed and 5% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse MIP-1 gamma is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
E. coli-derived recombinant human CCL23/MPIF-1 Arg22-Asn120 Accession # P55773
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.
Measured by its ability to neutralize CCL23/MPIF‑1-induced chemotaxis in the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CCR1. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.5-2.5 µg/mL in the presence of 20 ng/mL Recombinant Human CCL23/MPIF‑1 aa 46‑120.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Chemotaxis Induced by CCL23/MPIF‑1 and Neutralization by Human CCL23/MPIF‑1 Antibody.
Recombinant Human CCL23/ MPIF‑1 (Catalog # 131‑M1) chemoattracts the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CCR1 in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). The amount of cells that migrated through to the lower chemotaxis chamber was measured by Resazurin (Catalog # AR002). Chemotaxis elicited by Recombinant Human CCL23/ MPIF‑1 (20 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human CCL23/MPIF‑1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF371). The ND50 is typically 0.5‑2.5 µg/mL.

Myeloid progenitor inhibitory factor (MPIF-1), also known as CK beta 8 and MIP-3, is a member of the CC chemokine subfamily that is designated CCL23. Alternative splicing of the MPIF-1 gene results in two mRNAs that encode a short (CK beta 8) and a long (CK beta 8-1) isoform of the chemokine. CK beta 8 cDNA encodes a 120 amino acid (aa) residue precursor protein with a putative 21 aa residue signal peptide that is cleaved to generate a 99 aa residue mature CK beta 8 (aa 22‑120). Additional N-terminal processing of the 99 aa residue variant can generate a 75 aa residue CK beta 8 (aa 46‑120) that is significantly more active than the 99 aa residue variant. Similarly, CK beta 8-1 encodes a 137 aa residue precursor protein that can give rise to a 116 and a 92 aa residue chemokine. Among CC chemokine members, MPIF-1 is most closely related to MIP-5/CCL15 (67% sequence identity) and MIP-1 alpha /CCL3 (51%). MPIF-1 mRNA is most abundant in the adult lung and liver, but is also present in bone marrow, placenta, and various myelomonocytic cell lines. MPIF-1 has been shown to suppress the low proliferative potential colony-forming cells that give rise to granulocyte and monocyte lineages. MPIF-1 binds to CCR1 with high affinity and has been shown to be a potent chemoattractant and activator of monocytes, dendritic cells, and osteoclast precursors.
