Rat LIX Antibody Summary
Accession # P97885.1
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 LIX and Neutralization by Rat LIX Antibody. Recombinant Rat LIX (Catalog # 543-RL) chemo-attracts 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 Rat LIX (0.2 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Rat LIX Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF543). The ND50is typically 0.3-1.5 µg/mL.

LPS-induced CXC chemokine (LIX) is a chemokine originally cloned from LPS-stimulated mouse fibroblasts. Rat LIX shares approximately 74% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with mouse LIX and is likely the rat orthologue to mouse LIX. Rat LIX cDNA encodes a 130 aa residue precursor with a predicted 37 aa residue signal peptide and a 93 aa residue mature protein. Among human CXC chemokines, rat LIX is most closely related to human GCP-2 and ENA-78. Rat LIX also differs from these two human proteins by having an extended carboxy-terminus. The amino-terminal 115 residues of rat LIX shares 59% and 53% aa sequence homology with human GCP-2 and ENA-78, respectively. It is not clear if LIX should be considered an orthologue of GCP-2 or ENA-78. Yet, mouse LIX was alternatively named mouse GCP-2.
Purified recombinant rat LIX is C-terminally truncated. This is consistent with the observation that natural mouse LIX purified from fibroblasts and epithelial cells also contains multiple amino-terminal and carboxy-terminal truncated isoforms. The shorter isoforms of the natural protein were reported to be more active than the longer forms. The bioactivity of rat LIX can be mediated through CXCR2.
