Monocyte chemotactic protein 5 (MCP-5), also known as CCL 12, is a novel and potent monocyte active chemokine that is involved in allergic inflammation and the host response to pathogens.1 It is also a potent chemoattractant for peripheral blood monocytes and induces a calcium flux in peripheral blood mononuclear cells.2
>97% by SDS-PAGE and analyzed by silver stain.
<0.01EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
The biological activity of Mouse MCP-5 was determined by its ability to chemoattract 2 day cultured human monocytes (Matsushima, K. et al., 1989, J. Exp. Med. 169:1485) and by its ability to chemoattract hCCR2A transfected mouse BaF/3 cells. The expected ED50 for these effects are typically 0.02 - 0.06 μg/ml and 0.015 - 0.075 μg/ml, respectively.
