Purity > 99 % Greater than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Anion-exchange FPLC.
(c) Analysis by reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE Silver Stained gel.
Add. information Protein quantitation was carried out by two independent methods:
1. UV spectroscopy at 280 nm .
2. Analysis by RP-HPLC, using a standard solution of MCP-1 as a Reference Standard.
Concentration 1 mg/ml

Storage Lyophilized rHuMCP-1 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18 C. Upon reconstitution rHuMCP-1 should be stored at 4 C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18 C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
Source E.coli
Recombinant Human MCP-1 also known as Monocyte Chemotactic and Activating Factor (MCAF) produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated, Polypeptide chain containing 76 amino acids.The rHuMCP-1 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
AA Sequence:
The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Gln-Pro-Asp-Ala-Ile.
Biological activity:
MCP-1 is fully biologically active when compared to standard. ED50=3.0-10 ng/mL. The biological activity was determined by measuring dose dependent chemotaxis with human THP-1 cells.
Molecular weight: 8607 Dalton.
Buffer System:
Lyophilized from a concentrated solution in water containing no additives.
Less than 1% as determined by silver-stained SDS-PAGE gel analysis.
Endotoxin level:
Less than 0.1 ng/µg (IEU/µg) of rHuMCP-1.
>99% Greater than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Anion-exchange FPLC.
(c) Analysis by reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE Silver Stained gel.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized rHuMCP-1 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
