Eotaxin also called CCL11 is a CC chemokine that signals through the CCR3 receptor. It is produced by IFN-gamma stimulated endothelial cells and TNF-activated monocytes. Eotaxin selectively chemoattracts eosinophils and along Eotaxin-2 and Eotaxin-3, plays a key role in the regulation of eosinophil recruitment in the asthmatic lung, and in allergic reactions.
We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1% BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at < -20°C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8°C, but should be kept at -20°C for long term storage, preferably desiccated. Upon reconstitution, the preparation is stable for up to one week at 2-8°C. For maximal stability, apportion the reconstituted preparation into working aliquots and store at -20°C to -70°C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Approximately 8.4 kDa, a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 74 amino acids.
Less than 1 EU/μg of Eotaxin/CCL11 as determined by LAL method.
