|Application||Sandwich ELISA kit of Quantitative Detection for Rat Rantes
This kit is used for quantitative detection of rat Rantes in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma(heparin, EDTA, citrate).
There is no detectable cross-reactivity with other relevant proteins.
|Background||Rantes (regulated on activation normal T cell expressed and secreted) is one of the natural ligands for the chemokine receptor CCR5 and potently suppresses in vitro replication of the R5 strains of HIV-1, which use CCR5 as a coreceptor. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells or CD4(+) lymphocytes obtained from different individuals have wide variations in their ability to secrete RANTES.1 The Rantes gene product is predicted to be 10 kDa and, after cleavage of the signal peptide, approximately 8 kDa. Of the 68 residues, 4 are cysteines, and there are no sites for N-linked glycosylation. Rantes is expressed by cultured T cell lines that are Ag specific and growth factor dependent.2|
