Detection of CCR2 in Mouse Splenocytes by Flow Cytometry. Mouse splenocytes were stained with Rat Anti-Mouse CCR2 Alexa Fluor® 700‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB5538N) and Rat Anti-Mouse Gr‑1/Ly‑6G Fluorescein‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB1037F). Quadrant markers were set based on control antibody staining (Catalog # IC013N). View our protocol for Staining Membrane-associated Proteins.

CCR2, also known as CD192, is a 38 kDa 7TM chemokine receptor that preferentially binds CCL2, CCL7, and CCL13. CCR2 is expressed by multiple hematopoietic cells, endothelial cells, fibroblasts, neurons, and smooth muscle cells. It functions as an HIV fusion co-factor and facilitates T cell recruitment during inflammation. Two alternate splice forms (CCR2A and CCR2B) differ only by the addition of 14 amino acids to the intracellular carboxyl terminal. Mouse CCR2 shares 67% and 95% aa sequence identity with human and rat CCR2, respectively.
