Human I-309/CCL1 was initially identified by subtractive hybridization as a transcript that was present in a γ/δ T cell line but not in EBV-transformed B cells. Human CCL1 has been assumed to be a homologue of the mouse TCA3. While the two proteins share only approximately 42% amino acid sequence identity, both chemokines contain an extra pair of cysteine residues not found in most other chemokines. Human CCL1 and mouse TCA3 also share significant sequence homology in the 5’ flanking region of their genes.
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 20 mM PB, pH 7.4, 100 mM NaCl.
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 8.5 kDa, a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 74 amino acids.
Less than 1 EU/μg of I-309/CCL1 as determined by LAL method.
