Recombinant Human MCP-2/CCL8 is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 76 amino acids.
Background: MCP-2 and MCP-3 are two monocyte chemotactic proteins produced by human MG-63 osteosarcoma cells. Both MCP-2 and MCP-3 are members of the CC family of chemokines and share 62% and 71% amino acid sequence identity, respectively, with MCP-1.MCP-3 also shares 58% amino acid identity with MCP-2.Similarly to other CC chemokines, all three MCP proteins are monocyte chemoattractants. In addition,the three MCPs can chemoattract activated NK cells as well as CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes. All three cytokines have also been shown to attract eosinophils and induce histamine secretion from basophils.
