      DescriptionMacrophage Inflammatory Protein-1α Protein, Recombinant rat
      OverviewRat macrophage inflammatory protein-1alpha (MIP-1alpha) is an 7.8 kDa protein containing 69 amino acid residues. It plays an important role in the inflammatory response of blood monocytes and tissue macrophages.

      Specific ActivityGF048 produces chemotaxis over a wide concentration range in an assay using rat peritoneal macrophages. Significant chemotaxis was achieved using a concentration of 50-100 ng/mL.
      Entrez Gene SummaryMacrophage inflammatory protein-1 is a so-called monokine that is involved in the acute inflammatory state in the recruitment and activation of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (Wolpe et al., 1988 [PubMed 3279154]). Sherry et al. (1988) [PubMed 3058856] demonstrated 2 protein components of MIP1, called by them alpha and beta.[supplied by OMIM]
      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: P10147 # Monokine with inflammatory and chemokinetic properties. Binds to CCR1, CCR4 and CCR5. One of the major HIV-suppressive factors produced by CD8+ T-cells. Recombinant MIP-1-alpha induces a dose-dependent inhibition of different strains of HIV-1, HIV-2, and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV).
      SIZE: 92 amino acids; 10085 Da
      SUBUNIT: Self-associates. Also heterodimer of MIP-1-alpha(4-69) and MIP-1-beta(3-69).
      PTM: N-terminal processed form LD78-alpha(4-69) is produced by proteolytic cleavage after secretion from HTLV1-transformed T- cells.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P10147 ## Belongs to the intercrine beta (chemokine CC) family.

      Storage and Shipping Information
      Storage ConditionsThe lyophilized powder, though stable at room temperature, is best stored at -20°C. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Further dilutions can be made into other aqueous buffers and stored at 2-8 ºC for 1 week or -20 ºC for future use. Reconstituted rat MIP-1alpha should be stored in undiluted aliquots at -20°C for up to 6 months.
