Human CCL4/MIP-1 beta Quantikine ELISA Kit Summary
The Quantikine Human MIP-1 beta Immunoassay is a 3.0 or 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure MIP-1 beta in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant human MIP-1 beta (Act-2 variant) and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant human MIP-1 beta. Resu...lts obtained using natural human MIP-1 beta showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human MIP-1 beta.

CCL4/MIP-1 beta is a beta chemokine that is secreted at sites of inflammation by activated leukocytes, lymphocytes, vascular endothelial cells, and pulmonary smooth muscle cells. It attracts a variety of immune cells to sites of microbial infection as well as to other pathologic inflammation such as allergic asthma and ischemic myocardium. CCL4 is secreted from activated monocytes as a heterodimer with CCL3/MIP-1 alpha. It signals through CCR5, and an N-terminally trimmed form additionally interacts with CCR1 and CCR2. In humans, the ability of CCL4 to bind CCR5 inhibits the cellular entry of M-tropic HIV-1 which utilizes CCR5 as a coreceptor.
