Monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1) also known as monocyte chemotactic and activating factor (MCAF) was identified based on its ability to chemoattract monocytes. Subsequently, MCP-1 has also been found to regulate adhesion molecule expression and cytokine production in monocytes. MCP-1 is identical to the product of the JE gene, a PDGF inducible gene. MCP-1 is a member of the beta (C-C) chemokine subfamily, known as CCL2. The 2H5 antibody reacts with mouse, rat, and human MCP-1. The 2H5 antibody can neutralize the bioactivity of natural or recombinant MCP-1.Product Details

- Application Notes
ELISA or ELISPOT Capture1: The Ultra-LEAF™ 2H5 antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated 4E2/MCP antibody (Cat. No. 506002) as the detecting antibody for the detection of mouse MCP-1. The purified 2H5 antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated 5D3-F7 antibody (Cat. No. 502609) as the detecting antibody for the detection of human MCP-1.
Flow Cytometry2: The fluorochrome-labeled 2H5 antibody is useful for intracellular immunofluorescent staining and flow cytometric analysis to identify MCP-1 -producing cells within mixed cell populations.
