Human CCL7/MCP-3 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human CCL7/MCP-3 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human CCL7 in cell culture supernates. serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Chemokine(C-C motif) ligand 7(CCL7) is a small cytokine known as a chemokine that was previously called monocyte-specific chemokine 3(MCP3). It belongs to the C-C chemokine family. By fluorescence in situ hybridization, mapped the MCP3 gene to chromosome 17q11.2-q12. MCP3 was identified as a physiologic substrate of gelatinase A. Cleaved MCP3 binds to CC-chemokine receptors-1, -2, and -3, but no longer induces calcium fluxes or promotes chemotaxis, and instead acts as a general chemokine antagonist that dampens inflammation, suggested that matrix metalloproteinases are both effectors and regulators of the inflammatory response.
