Detects human CCL5/RANTES in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, this antibody does not cross-react with other chemokines, including recombinant human CCL2, 3, 4, recombinant mouse (rm) CCL3, and rmCCL4.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG1 Clone # 21445
Protein A or G purified from ascites
E. coli-derived recombinant human CCL5/RANTES
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.
Human CCL5/RANTES transfected NS0 cells fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with saponin
Measured by its ability to neutralize CCL5/RANTES-induced chemotaxis in the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CCR5. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.1-0.4 µg/mL in the presence of 0.01 µg/mL Recombinant Human CCL5/RANTES.
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 CCL5/RANTES and Neutralization by Human CCL5/RANTES Antibody.
Recombinant Human CCL5/RANTES (Catalog # 278-RN) 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 CCL5/RANTES (0.01 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Human CCL5/RANTES Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB278). The ND50 is typically 0.1-0.4 µg/mL.
CCL5/RANTES was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse small intestine using Mouse Anti-Human CCL5/RANTES Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB278) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Rat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS017) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.
