Human CCL8/MCP-2 Antibody

  
  • Species Reactivity
    Human
  • Specificity
    Detects human CCL8/MCP‑2 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, less than 2% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) MCP-1 and rhMCP-3 is observed. Neutralizes the biological activity of recombinant human MCP-2, but will not neutralize the biological activity of MCP-1 or MCP-3.
  • Source
    Polyclonal Goat IgG
  • Purification
    Protein A or G purified
  • Immunogen
    E. coli-derived recombinant human CCL8/MCP-2
    Gln24-Pro99
    Accession # P80075
  • Formulation
    Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose.
  • Endotoxin Level
    <0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.
  • Label
    Unconjugated
Applications
  •  
    Recommended
    Concentration
    Sample
  • Western Blot
    1 µg/mL
    Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP‑2 (Catalog # 281-CP)
  • Neutralization
    Measured by its ability to neutralize CCL8/MCP‑2-induced chemotaxis in human monocytes. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 60-120 µg/mL in the presence of 0.4 µg/mL Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP‑2.
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.
Data Examples
Chemotaxis Induced by CCL8/MCP‑2 and Neutral­ization by Human CCL8/
MCP‑2 Antibody.
Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP‑2 (Catalog # 281-CP) chemoattracts human monocytes in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). The amount of cells that migrated through the filter was measured by LeukoStat™ staining (Fisher Scientific). Chemotaxis elicited by Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP‑2 (0.4 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human CCL8/MCP‑2 Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AB-281-NA). The ND50 is typically 60‑120 µg/mL.

Background: CCL8/MCP-2

MCP-2 and MCP-3 are two monocyte chemotactic proteins produced by human MG-63 osteosarcoma cells. Both MCP-2 and MCP-3 are members of the C-C family of chemokines and share 62% and 71% amino acid sequence identity, respectively, with MCP-1. MCP-3 also shares 58% amino acid identity with MCP-2.

Similar to other C-C chemokines, all three MCP proteins are monocyte chemoattractants. In addition, the three MCPs can chemoattract activated NK cells as well as CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes. All three cytokines have also been shown to attract eosinophils and induce histamine secretion from basophils.
