Recombinant CCL7 (MCP-3)
Catalog No., Size:
#1112 Anti-Human CCR5 Antibody 50188P-2 2ug
CCL7, also known as Monocyte Chemotactic Protein-3 (MCP-3), is a secreted chemokine that attracts macrophages, monocytes, and eosinophils during inflammation and metastasis. It is a member of the C-C subfamily of chemokines which are characterized by having two adjacent cysteine residues. In vivo, this protein is a substrate of matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP2), an enzyme that degrades components of the extracellular matrix. The gene that encodes CCL7 is part of a cluster of C-C chemokine family members on chromosome 17q. CCL7 binds to CCR1, CCR2, and CCR3 receptors and appears to be an antagonist for the CCR5 receptor.
Source: Recombinant human CCL7 is produced in E. coli (accession no. P80098).
