Chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 2 (CCL2) is a small cytokine belongs to the CC chemokine family which is also known as monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1). MCP 1 is found at the site of tooth eruption and bone degradation. In the bone, CCL2 is expressed by mature osteoclasts. CCL2 recruits immune cells, such as monocytes, to sites of tissue injury and infection. MCP 1is produced as a protein precursor containing signal peptide of 23 amino acids and a mature peptide of 76 amino acids. As with many other CC chemokines, CCL2 is located on chromosome 17 in humans. The cell surface receptors that bind CCL2 are CCR2 and CCR5.
MCP1 Rat Recombinant produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 134 amino acids (24-148 aa) and having a molecular mass of 15.1kDa.
MCP1 is fused to a 6 amino acid His tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
