Human Cytokine/Growth Factor/Chemokines Sample Spec sheets (subject to change without notice):

recombinant Human MCP-4

-Human macrophage/monocyte chemotactic protein-4 (MCP-4) is a member of the B- chemokine family (C-C) of cytokines. Like eotaxin, MCP-4 is a powerful eosinophil chemoattractant. Additionally, like MCP-3, MCP-4 elicits chemoattraction of monocytes and T lymphocytes. MCP-4 is a peptide of 8.6kDa that consists of 75 amino acid residues.

Catalog#: RDI-3024

Package Size: 20 micrograms $231.00     $219.00/pack 2 or more

                       MINI-PACK cat#RDI-3024p $94.00/5ug      inquire for bulk

Supplied: sterile filtered and then the protein was lyophilized (no additives)

Source: E. Coli

Purity: >95% by SDS-Page and HPLC analyses. Endotoxin level is less than 0.1ng per ug (1EU/ug) of MCP-4

Reconstitution: The lyophilized human MCP-4 is soluble in water and most aqueous buffers. The material can be reconstituted in water to a concentration of 0.1- 1mg/ml. Allow to set at least 30 minutes at 4 DEG C, tighten cap and rotate to reconstitute any material on sides of vial. If desired, you can centrifuge at 1000 rpm for 1 minute to concentrate volume in bottom of vial. This solution can be diluted into water or other buffered solutions or stored at 4 DEG C for future use. Avoid freeze thaw cycles which will result in some loss of activity.

Note:If this material is not to be used for coating or labeling(or other applications requiring carrier free material), the addition of 0.1% BSA to dilution buffers or dilution in sterile culture media is recommended to enhance stability and minimize absorption to vial. Ideally, maintain concentration >50ug/ml.

Storage: The lyophilized powder is stable at room temperature for a few weeks but it is best stored desiccated at -20 Deg C. Reconstituted human MCP-4 should be stored in working aliquots at -20 DEG C. AVOID FREQUENT FREEZE THAW CYCLES. EACh FREEZE THAW CYCLE WILL DIMINISH ACTIVITY.

Reactivity: Determined by its ability to chemoattract human peripheral blood monocytes using a concentration of 10.0-100.0ng/ml
