Optimized DNA sequence encoding Human Rantes/CCL5 mature chain was expressed in Escherichia Coli.

Molecular weight:

Native human RANTES/CCL5 is generated by the proteolytic removal of the signal peptide and propeptide, the molecule has a calculated molecular mass of approximately 8 kDa.

Recombinant RANTES/CCL5 is a disulfide-linked monomer protein consisting of 69 amino acid residue subunits and migrates as an approximately 8 kDa protein under non-reducing and reducing conditions in SDS-PAGE.

>98%, as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC

Biological Activity:
Determined by its ability to chemoattract human blood monocytes using a concentration range of 1.0-10.0 ng/ml.

Endotoxin content was assayed using a LAL gel clot method.
Endotoxin level was found to be less than 0.1 ng/µg(1EU/µg).

Recombinant Rantes/CCL5 was lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered PBS solution.

A quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers.

The lyophilized protein is stable for at least 2 years from date of receipt at -20° C.
Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8° C for one month, or at -20° C for six months, with a carrier protein without detectable loss of activity.

Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

RANTES belongs to the family of chemotactic cytokines known as Chemokines. RANTES is expressed by an early response gene. The synthesis of RANTES is induced by TNF-alpha and IL1-alpha.RANTES is chemotactic for T-cells, human eosinophils and basophils and plays an active role in recruiting leukocytes into inflammatory sites. RANTES also activates eosinophils to release, for example, eosinophilic cationic protein. It changes the density of eosinophils and makes them hypodense, which is thought to represent a state of generalized cell activation and is associated most often with diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis. RANTES also is a potent activator of oxidative metabolism specific for eosinophils. RANTES increases the adherence of monocytes to endothelial cells. It selectively supports the migration of monocytes and T-lymphocytes expressing the cell surface markers CD4 and UCHL1. These cells are thought to be pre-stimulated T-helper cells with memory T-cell functions. RANTES activates human basophils from some select basophil donors and causes the release of histamines.
