CXC chemokine ligand 7 is a small cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family. It is a protein that is released in large amounts from platelets following their activation.1 It stimulates various processes including mitogenesis, synthesis of extracellular matrix, glucose metabolism and synthesis of plasminogen activator.2,3
>97% by SDS-PAGE and analyzed by silver stain.
<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
The biological activity of Human CXCL7 was determined by its induction of myeloperoxidase release from cytochalasin B treated human neutrophils (Schröder, J. et al., 1987 J. Immunol. 139:3474) or chemotaxis of BaF/3 hCXCR-2 transfected cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is typically 0.1 - 0.3 μg/ml, or 0.1 - 0.5 ng/ml, respectively.
