<i.E. coli derived Purified Recombinant Mouse CCL17/TARC (Accession # Q9WUZ6)
This biotinylated antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco’s phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 – 7.4 containing 50 µg of bovine serum albumin per µg of antibody with no calcium, magnesium, or preservatives present.
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized, biotinylated antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for up to twelve months from date of receipt. The reconstituted biotin conjugate can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted conjugate, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles. No detectable loss of activity was observed after six months.

Western Blotting: To detect Mouse CCL17 this biotin conjugate can be used at a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. This biotin conjugate should be used in conjunction with compatible second-step reagents such as PN:A106 and a chromogenic substrate such as PN:T343. The detection limit for Mouse CCL17 is 2 ng/lane under either reducing or non-reducing conditions. The sensitivity of detection may increase up to 50 fold when a chemiluminescent substrate is used. A suitable Western blotting control is PN:T397.
ELISA Sandwich Assay: This antibody can be used as the detection antibody in a sandwich ELISA at a concentration of approximately 0.1-0.4 µg/ml when used in conjunction with PN:C1435 as the capture antibody at 2 µg/ml and an optimal second step reagent such as PN:A106 for the detection of Mouse CC17. The sensitivity of this sandwich ELISA is 2 ng/ml.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Goat Anti-Mouse Chemokine (C-C Motif) Ligand 17 (CCL17) recognizes Mouse CCL17. This antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody was purified using a proprietary chromatographic technique that includes covalently immobilizing the antigen proteins or peptides to agarose based beads. This purification method enhances specificity, reduces nonspecific binding of extraneous IgG and provides you with the most reliable reagent available for your early discovery research.
Chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 17 (CCL17) is a small cytokine belonging to the CC chemokine and is expressed constitutively in thymus, but only transiently in phytohemagglutinin-stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells.1 This chemokine specifically binds and induces chemotaxis in T cells and elicits its effects by interacting with the chemokine receptor CCR4.1,2 CCL17 may be a useful serological marker and may facilitate an assessment of the degree of disease activity in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).3 It may also participate in the pathogenesis of skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis (AD) by regulating both allergic and irritant inflammation.4
