Human CCL4/MIP-1 beta Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Human
Specificity
Detects human CCL4/MIP-1 beta in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, approximately 50% cross-reactivity with  recombinant mouse (rm) MIP-1 alpha is observed, approximately 20% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) MIP-1 alpha and recombinant cotton rat MIP-1 alpha is observed, and less than 1% cross-reactivity with rhMCP-2, rmMIP-1 beta, rmMCP-2, and recombinant viral MIP-1 beta  is observed.

Neutralization
Measured by its ability to neutralize CCL4/MIP‑1 beta -induced chemotaxis in the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CCR5. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.3-1.5 µg/mL in the presence of 40 ng/mL Recombinant Human CCL4/MIP‑1 beta.

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 CCL4/MIP‑1 beta  and Neutral­ization by Human CCL4/MIP‑1 beta  Antibody.

Recombinant Human CCL4/MIP‑1 beta (Catalog # 271-BME) chemoattracts the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CCR5 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 CCL4/MIP‑1 beta (40 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human CCL4/MIP‑1 beta Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF-271-NA). The ND50 is typically 0.3-1.5 µg/mL.

CCL4/MIP‑1 beta was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human Alzheimer's disease brain (hippocampus) using 15 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human CCL4/MIP‑1 beta Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF‑271‑NA) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-AEC Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (red; Catalog # CTS009) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

CCL4/MIP‑1 beta was detected in immersion fixed human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) stimulated with PHA and monensin using Goat Anti-Human CCL4/MIP‑1 beta Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF-271-NA) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (yellow; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Background: CCL4/MIP-1 beta

CCL4/MIP-1 beta is a beta chemokine that is secreted at sites of inflammation by activated leukocytes, lymphocytes, vascular endothelial cells, and pulmonary smooth muscle cells. It attracts a variety of immune cells to sites of microbial infection as well as to other pathologic inflammation such as allergic asthma and ischemic myocardium. CCL4 is secreted from activated monocytes as a heterodimer with CCL3/MIP-1 alpha. It signals through CCR5, and an N-terminally trimmed form additionally interacts with CCR1 and CCR2. In humans, the ability of CCL4 to bind CCR5 inhibits the cellular entry of M-tropic HIV-1 which utilizes CCR5 as a coreceptor.
