Description:

The C-C motif cytokines are a family of secreted proteins involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes, characterized by two adjacent cysteines. CCL18 (also known as Macrophage Inflammatory Protein-4/ MIP-4) displays chemotactic activity for naive T cells, CD4+ and CD8+ T cells and non-activated lymphocytes, but not for monocytes or granulocytes. It may play a role in both humoral and cell-mediated immunity, and is involved in B-cell migration in the lymph nodes. CCL18 is expressed in the lymph nodes, lungs, placenta and bone marrow.

Reconstitution:

Centrifuge vial prior to opening. Add sterile distilled water to a concentration of 0.1 mg/ml. DO NOT VORTEX. Allow several minutes for complete reconstitution. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.

Storage/Stability:

Store at -20°C to -80°C for up to 1 year. Upon reconstitution, the preparation is stable for up to one month at 2-8°C. For long term storage, freeze in working aliquots and store at -20 to -80°C. For maximal stability, dilute to working aliquots in a 0.1% BSA solution. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
