Recombinant Human CCL18 is a crucial protein involved in immune responses and plays an essential role in various immune-related processes, including chemotaxis of T-lymphocytes[1]. Our Recombinant Human CCL18 is a full-length mature protein containing amino acids 21-89 and is expressed in E. coli. It is presented as a lyophilized powder and is tag-free, making it ideal for a wide range of research applications.

Our recombinant human CCL18 protein offers a purity greater than 97% as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC. The endotoxin level is less than 1.0 EU/ug, as determined by the LAL method. The biological activity of our product has been verified by a chemotaxis bioassay using human T-lymphocytes, demonstrating activity in a concentration range of 1.0-10 ng/ml.

Research has shown that CCL18 plays a critical role in the regulation of immune responses and has been implicated in various immune-mediated disorders such as asthma, allergy, and inflammatory diseases[2]. Furthermore, elevated levels of CCL18 have been associated with tumor progression in certain cancers[3].

Target Background

Chemotactic factor that attracts lymphocytes but not monocytes or granulocytes. May be involved in B-cell migration into B-cell follicles in lymph nodes. Attracts naive T-lymphocytes toward dendritic cells and activated macrophages in lymph nodes, has chemotactic activity for naive T-cells, CD4+ and CD8+ T-cells and thus may play a role in both humoral and cell-mediated immunity responses.
