Rat MIP-1alpha/CCL3 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Rat MIP-1alpha/CCL3 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of rat MIP-1alpha in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA, citrate).
Macrophage inflammatory protein-1 alpha(MIP-1 alpha), also called CCL3, LD78. The cDNA for MIP-1 alpha predicts a mature peptide of 69 amino acids with a molecular mass of 7,889 daltons. LD78 is a member of a newly identified superfamily of small inducible proteins involved in inflammatory responses, wound healing and tumorigenesis. MIP-1 alpha is a chemokine that has pro-inflammatory and stem cell inhibitory activities in vitro. It constitutes an important second signal for mast cell degranulation in the conjunctiva in vivo and consequently for acute-phase disease.
