Description: This DNT3CC monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CCL3. CCL3, also known as MIP-1 alpha (Macrophage Inflammatory Protein 1 alpha), is a member of the CC- subfamily of chemokines and is most closely related to CCL4, or MIP-1 beta. These proteins play critical roles in the recruitment of leukocytes to the site of inflammation. While both CCL3 and CCL4 will attract monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells, CCL3 preferentially attracts CD8+ T cells, while CD4+ T cells are more responsive to CCL4. In addition to its chemotactic functions, CCL3 induces inflammatory cytokine secretion, mast cell degranulation, and NK cell activation. It has also been reported to inhibit hematopoetic stem cell proliferation and may be responsible for the maintece of these cells in a quiescent state. CCL3 signaling is mediated by the G protein-coupled receptors CCR1, CCR4, and CCR5, which are shared with CCL4 and CCL5 (RANTES). Applications Reported: This DNT3CC antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This DNT3CC antibody has been tested intracellular staining of stimulated mouse spleen cells followed by flow cytometric analysis using the Intracellular Fixation & Permeabilization Buffer Set (cat. 88-8824) and protocol. Please refer to Best Protocols: Protocol A: Two step protocol for (cytoplasmic) intracellular proteins. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 µg per test.A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. PerCP-eFluor® 710 emits at 710 nm and is excited with the blue laser (488 nm); it can be used in place of PerCP-Cyanine5.5. We recommend using a 710/50 bandpass filter, however, the 695/40 bandpass filter is an acceptable alternative. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome. Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically. Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 710 nm; Laser: Blue Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. Macrophage inflammatory protein-1a (MIP-1a) is an 8kDa member of the C-C chemokine subfamily. C-C chemokines are chemoattractants and activators for monocytes and T cells. MIP-1a has been identified as one of the major HIV-SFs produced by CD8+ T cells, along with MIP-1b and RANTES.
