Recombinant Mouse CXCL2/MIP-2 Protein Summary

Details of Functionality
Measured by its ability to induce myeloperoxidase release from cytochalasin B-treated human neutrophils. Schröder, J.M. et al. (1987) J. Immunol. 139:3474. The ED50 for this effect is 0.15‑0.3 µg/mL. Measured by its ability to chemoattract BaF3 mouse pro‑B cells transfected with human CXCR2. The ED50 for this effect is 0.1‑0.5 ng/mL.

Macrophage Inflammatory Protein-2 (MIP-2) was originally identified as a heparin-binding protein secreted from a murine macrophage cell line in response to endotoxin stimulation. Based on its protein and DNA sequences, MIP-2 is a member of the alpha (C-X-C) subfamily of chemokines.

MIP-2 cDNA encodes a 100 amino acid residue precursor protein from which the amino-terminal 27 amino acid residues are cleaved to generate the mature MIP-2. The protein sequence of murine MIP-2 shows approximately 63% identity to that of murine KC, another murine alpha chemokine whose expression is induced by PDGF. In addition, the protein sequence of MIP-2 is also 60% identical to human GRO beta and GRO gamma. It has been suggested that mouse KC and MIP-2 are the homologs of the human GROs and rat CINCs.

Similarly to other alpha chemokines, murine MIP-2 is a potent neutrophil attractant and activator. MIP-2 and KC can bind the murine interleukin 8 type B receptor homologue with high affinity. The expression of MIP-2 was found to be associated with neutrophil influx in pulmonary inflammation and glomerulonephritis, suggesting that MIP-2 may contribute to the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases.

CommentsA total of 10^6 mouse neutrophils was added to an insert of a transwell. Recombinant mouse MIP-2 (100 ng/ml) was used as a neutrophil chemoattractant and was added to the lower chamber. After 2 hours of incubation, migrated neutrophils in the lower chambers were enumerated.
