The 10- and 20-plate sizes of this assay have been discontinued. The assay will remain available for purchase under the 5-plate catalog number, but will no longer include ELISA microwell plates. Recommended microwell plates can be purchased separately under Cat. No. 423501. Please contact your BioLegend sales representative for bulk pricing quotations.
CCL5, also known as RANTES, is a member of the CC family of chemokines. The precursor of CCL5 contains 91 amino acids, with an N-terminal signal peptide of 23 amino acids which is cleaved to generate the 68 amino acids mature protein (7.8 kD). Human mature CCL5 shares 82% - 90% amino acid seqeuence identity with equine, porcine, bovine, mouse, rat and canine CCL5.
CCL5 is expressed by T cells and monocytes/macrophages. It plays an active role in recruiting leukocytes into inflammatory sites through receptors CCR1, CCR3, CCR4, and CCR5. CCL5 induces the proliferation and activation of certain natural killer (NK) cells. It also inhibits HIV-1 entry and infection. In addition, CCL5 plays a crucial role in the migration and metastasis of cancer cells. Increased CCL5 levels are found in melanoma, breast, cervical, prostate, gastric, and pancreatic cancers.
Both the ELISA MAX™ Set Standard and ELISA MAX™ Set Deluxe are specifically engineered for accurate recovery and measurement of analytes in complex fluids, such as serum and plasma (as well as activated cell cultures) without any interference by confounding serum factors, such as heterophilic antibody or rheumatoid factor.

- Do the ELISA MAX™ Deluxe Sets come with plates?
No, ELISA MAX™ Deluxe sets no longer come with plates, but Coating Buffer and Assay Diluent (for blocking and dilutions) are included in the ELISA MAX™ Deluxe Sets. Plates can be ordered separately (Cat. No. 423501), and instructions on coating the plates are in the sets’ product manuals.
