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.
Recombinant Mouse CXCL1/GRO alpha /KC/CINC-1 aa 20-96 (Catalog # 453-KC) under non-reducing conditions only
Measured by its ability to neutralize CXCL1/GRO alpha /KC/CINC‑1-induced chemotaxis in the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CXCR2. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 1-5 µg/mL in the presence of 30 ng/mL Recombinant Mouse CXCL1/GRO alpha /KC/CINC‑1 aa 20‑96.
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 CXCL1/KC and Neutralization by Mouse CXCL1/KC Antibody. Recombinant Mouse CXCL1/KC (Catalog # 453-KC) chemoattracts the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CXCR2 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 Mouse CXCL1/KC (30 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse CXCL1/KC Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4531). The ND50 is typically 1-5 µg/mL.

Background: CXCL1/GRO alpha/KC/CINC-1
CXCL1/GRO alpha, also known as KC in mouse and CINC-1 in rat, is a member of the CXC family of chemokines. Human CXCL1/GRO alpha is 107 amino acids (aa) in length with a predicted molecular weight of 11 kDa. The mouse and rat orthologs share 57% and 59% amino acid sequence identity with the human protein, respectively. Genome-wide analysis suggests that the protein encoded by the mouse Cxcl3 gene is homologous to human CXCL1/GRO alpha protein. Human CXCL1/GRO alpha can be cleaved into three isoforms CXCL1/GRO alpha (aa 4-73), CXCL1/GRO alpha (aa 5-73), and CXCL1/GRO alpha (aa 6-73) which show higher activity than the full length protein. CXCL1/GRO alpha is secreted by mast cells and macrophages whereupon it acts as a chemoattractant for neutrophils.
