Purified Recombinant Mouse MCP-3 (>98%)
<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized antibody should be stored desiccated at -20°C. The reconstituted antibody can be stored for at least six weeks at 4°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted antibody, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
Western Blotting: To detect Mouse MCP-3 this polyclonal antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1-0.2 µg/ml. This polyclonal antibody should be used in conjunction with compatible second-step reagents such as PN:G505 and a chromogenic substrate such as PN:T343. The detection limit for Mouse MCP-3 is 1 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:M134.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Neutralization: Measured by its ability to neutralize CCL7/MCP‑3/MARC-induced chemotaxis in the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CCR2A. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 7.5-45 µg/mL in the presence of 2 µg/mL Recombinant Mouse CCL7/MCP‑3/MARC.
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 Monocyte Chemotactic Protein-3 (MCP-3) recognizes Mouse MCP-3. 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.
Monocyte chemotactic protein-3 (MCP3) is a non-glycosylated polypeptide belonging to the the CC-Chemokines family that attracts monocytes and eosinophils, augments monocyte anti-tumor activity, and induces the release of gelatinase B. It also regulates protease secretion by macrophages. MCP3 can bind heparin.1 MCP-3 is one of the most pluripotent chemokines since it activates all types of leukocytes. MCP-3 may affect HIV-1 infection via inhibiting the binding of HIV envelope to CCR5.2 MCP-3 has also been implicated in Multiple Sclerosis, allergic reactions and viral infections.3,4,5
