Mouse MCP-1 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse MCP-1 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse MCP-1 in cell culture supernates and serum.
Monocyte chemotactic protein-1(MCP-1) is a member of the small inducible gene(SIG) family. It has been shown to play a role in the recruitment of monocytes to sites of injury and infection. By analysis of a panel of somatic cell hybrids, we have localized the MCP-1 gene, designated SCYA2, to human chromosome 17. In situ hybridization confirmed this assignment and further localized the gene to 17q11.2-q21.1. MCP-1 plays a unique and crucial role in the initiation of atherosclerosis and may provide a new therapeutic target in this disorder. Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1(MCP-1), regulated on activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted,and stimulation of monocytes from healthy carriers of the genotype GG with Mycobacterium tuberculosis antigens yielded higher MCP-1. The standard used in this kit is recombinant mouse MCP-1(Q24-R96) with the molecular mass of 8.5Kda.
