Product Sheet: Human recombinant MIP-1 alpha

Catalog NumberMI-290-4
Product IdMI-290-4
Product NameHuman recombinant MIP-1 alpha
CategoryGrowth Factors, Cytokines, Receptors and their Antibodies
SubcategoryMacrophage Inflammatory Proteins
DescriptionMacrophage Inflammatory Protein MIP-1 alpha is part of the CC subfamily of the chemokine superfamily of chemoattractant cytokines. MIP-1 alpha affects the inflammatory response of blood monocytes, tissue macrophages, and T cells. MIP-1 alpha also enhances the formation of granulocyte-macrophage colonies stimulated by GM-CSF or M-CSF. Human MIP-1 alpha is composed of 69 amino acid residues with not possible N-linked glycosylation sites, and several possible O-linked sites. Human MIP-1 alpha is 60% homologous with human MIP-1 alpha, 75% homologous with murine MIP-1 alpha, and has been shown to be active on murine cells. Human recombinant MIP-1 alpha is produced in genetically engineered yeast, and purified by sequential chromatography.
