Assay Principle
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.  
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.    
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of rat MCP-1 in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

CUSABIO's rat CCL2 ELISA kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative determination of CCL2 concentrations in serum, plasma, and tissue homogenates. This assay exclusively recognizes rat CCL2. The quantitative sandwich ELISA technique of this kit is based on CCL2 antibody-CCL2 antigen interactions and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect the levels of CCL2 in samples. The intensity of the color is positively proportional to the amount of bound CCL2 in the initial step.

CCL2 is the most powerful chemoattractant involved in macrophage recruitment and a potentinitiator of inflammation. It exerts potent chemotactic, stimulatory, and mitogenic effects on mononuclear cells. CCL2 also plays an important role in coordinating the immune response after microbial infection by regulating T cell polarization as well as leukocyte migration and accumulation within infected tissues. CCL2/CCR2 signaling has multiple pro-tumorigenic roles, including mediating tumor growth and angiogenesis as well as recruiting and usurping host stromal cells to support tumor progression. CCL2 upregulation has been linked to tumor metastasis, invasion, and immune resistance.

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
Acts as a ligand for C-C chemokine receptor CCR2. Signals through binding and activation of CCR2 and induces a strong chemotactic response and mobilization of intracellular calcium ions. Exhibits a chemotactic activity for monocytes and basophils but not neutrophils or eosinophils. Plays an important role in mediating peripheral nerve injury-induced neuropathic pain. Increases NMDA-mediated synaptic transmission in both dopamine D1 and D2 receptor-containing neurons, which may be caused by MAPK/ERK-dependent phosphorylation of GRIN2B/NMDAR2B.

  1. Study shows that the unique combination of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 andsecreted ectodomain of sialic acid-binding Ig-like lectin-9 ameliorates rat acute liver failure by inhibiting hepatocellular apoptosis and promoting liver regeneration through the induction of anti-inflammatory/tissue-repairing M2 macrophages. PMID: 28272428
