C-X-C motif chemokine 6, Chemokine alpha 3, CKA-3, Granulocyte chemotactic protein 2, GCP-2, Small-inducible cytokine B6.
Granulocyte Chemotactic Protein 2 (CXCL6), also known as GCP-2, is a Chemotactic for neutrophil granulocytes. GCP-2 signals through binding and activation of its receptors (CXCR1 and CXCR2). GCP-2 has strong antibacterial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria in addition to its chemotactic and angiogenic property.
Granulocyte Chemotactic Protein 2 (CXCL6) Bovine Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 76 amino acids and having a molecular mass of approximately 8.0kDa.
GCP2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a 0.2μm filtered concentrated solution in 20 mM PB and 500mM NaCl, pH 7.0.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Granulocyte Chemotactic Protein 2 (CXCL6) in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized GCP2 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Granulocyte Chemotactic Protein 2 (CXCL6) should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 97.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
