Human CCL13 (MCP-4) was initially identified in a library constructed from human fetal mRNA. CCL13 shares a high similarity with CCL2 (MCP-1, 61%), CCL7 (MCP-3, 58%), and CCL8 (MCP-2, 55%). CCL13 is constitutively expressed at high levels in the small intestine, colon, and lung. Original data showed that CCL13 was less effective than MCP-1 and MCP-3 in monocyte and lymphocyte chemoattraction, but equivalent to eotaxin as a chemoattractant for eosinophils. Chemokines are very important in the inflammatory process, initially in the influx of PMN by CXC chemokines and subsequently chemoattracting monocytes where the MCPs participate, including CCL13. The bioactivity of pro-inflammatory chemokines is regulated by MMPs in order to regulate the influx of different cell subpopulations. In the case of CCL13, it is inactivated by MMP-12 by truncation at position 4-5 generating a CCR antagonist and decreasing the arrival of monocytes. CCL13 binds to CCR2, and this receptor also binds to CCL2, CCL8, CCL7, CCL11, CCL24, and CCL26. CCL13 is involved in inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), atherosclerosis, and asthma. High levels of CCL13 have been detected in the synovial fluid of patients with RA, in serum of asthmatic patients, and in plasma of patients with symptomatic carotid atherosclerosis.Product Details

ELISA Capture - Quality tested
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For ELISA Capture applications, a concentration range of 0.4 - 3 µg/mL is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of CCL13 (MCP4) recombinant protein ranging from 3.9 to 250 pg/mL is recommended for each ELISA plate. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
The pure 3G4 (Cat. No. 537602) antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA assay, paired with biotinylated 8C12 (Cat. No. 537704) and Lyophilized CCL13 (MCP4) (Cat. No. 587509).

Epithelial cells, endothelial cells, fibroblasts, chondrocytes, macrophages
- CCL13 chemoattract monocytes, eosinophils, CD4, and CD8 T cells. CCL13 induces histamine release from IL-3-primed peripheral blood basophils. IFN-γ induces CCL13 in bronchial epithelial cell lines, endothelial cells, and chondrocytes, and a synergistic effect is obtained with INF-γ and TNF-α or IL-1 in chondrocytes. CCL13 is processed and inactivated by MMP-12.
