Product Name

Viral Macrophage inflammatory Protein-2 (vMIP2), Recombinant Protein

Full Product Name

Recombinant Viral Macrophage inflammatory Protein-2

Product Synonym Names
MIP2 Viral; MIP-2 Viral Recombinant; MIP-2 Viral; Viral MIP-2; MIP2 Viral; Viral MIP2; Viral Macrophage inflammatory Protein-2
Research Use Only
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
E Coli
Greater than 97.0% as determined by RP-HPLC & SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 1mg/ml solution containing 20mM Phospahte Buffer, pH 7.4 % 0.15M NaCl.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized CXCL2 Viral in sterile 18M Omega -cm H2O not less than 100 ug/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Biological Activity
Determined by the inhibitory effect on monocyte migration response to human MIP1A using a concentration range of 1 ug-10 ug/ml of viral MIP2 which will inhibit 25ng/ml of human MIP1A.
Preparation and Storage
Lyophilized MIP-2 Viral protein although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18 degree C. Upon reconstitution CXCL2 should be stored at 4 degree C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18 degree C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Other Notes
Small volumes of vMIP2 recombinant protein vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

vMIP2 recombinant protein
Description: MIP-2 Viral Recombinant produced in E Coli is a single,non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 70 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 7.9 kDa. The MIP-2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Introduction: Viral MIP-2 is closely related to MIP-1alpha, show amino acid sequence similarity of about 41%. At the amino acid sequence level, Viral MIP-1 and Viral MIP-2 share 48% similarity. Viral MIP-1 and Viral MIP-2 are more closely linked to one another phylogenetically than to other human chemokines, signifying that they have gene duplication within the virus rather than by two independent gene aquisitions. Viral MIP-2 binds to the CCR3 chemokine receptor through which eotaxin and other beta chemokines activate eosinophils. Viral MIP-2 activates and chemoattract human eosinphils.

UniProt Comments for vMIP2
Blocks infection by several different human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) strains. This occurs because vMIP-II binds to a wide range of chemokine receptors. May form part of the response to host defenses contributing to virus-induced neoplasia and may have relevance to KSHV and HIV-I interactions.
