  • $160.00


Description :Recombinant Human MIP-4 (CCL18) was expressed in E. coli cells.

Species :Human

Expression System:E.coli

Genbank Number :P55774

Storage, Stability and Shipping :The lyophilized protein is stable for at least one year from date of receipt at -70oC. Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at 2o - 8oC for one month, or at -20oC for six months, with a carrier protein without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

Applications :Cell Assay

Endotoxin Level :<1.0 EU/μg of recombinant protein as determined by the LAL method.

Molecular Weight :8.0 kDa

Gene Aliases :MIP4, CCL18, Pulmonary and activation-regulated chemokine, PARC, DC-CK1, AMAC-1, C-C motif chemokine 18, Small-inducible cytokine A18, Recombinant Human Macrophage Inflammatory Protein-4 (CCL18)

Reconstitution Protocol :A quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers.

Scientific Background :CCL18, also designated dendritic cell (DC)3-derived CC chemokine 1, pulmonary and activation-regulated chemokine, alternative macrophage activation-associated CC chemokine 1, and MIP-4, is a human chemokine structurally related to CCL3. CCL18 was shown to be expressed in germinal centers of tonsils by dendritic cells and to attract mainly naive T cells, CD38 mantle zone B lymphocytes and DC. The production of CCL18 by APC is enhanced by Th2 cytokines like IL-4 and IL-13 and suppressed by IFN-gamma.

Sample Cell Assay Data :Determined by its ability to chemoattract human T cells using a concentration range of 2-40 ng/mL.

Purity :Recombinant Human MIP-4 (CCL18) resolved on a 17% SDS-PAGE gel under reducing conditions and stained with Coomassie Brilliant Blue G-250
