DescriptionMCP-1 (Monocyte chemotactic protein-1, CCL2) has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 11kDa, however, it may run at a higher molecular weight due to glycosylation. MCP-1 is a member of the cytokine family and plays an important role in immunoregulation and inflammatory processes. MCP-1 signals through G protein-coupled receptors, CCR2 and CCR4, to recruit memory T cells, monocytes and dendritic cells. MCP-1 is linked with tumor progression, angiogenesis, and displays selective chemotactic activity towards monocytes and basophils but not neutrophils or eosinophils. MCP-1 is produced by a variety of cell types and is a potent chemoattractant for monocytes, memory T lymphocytes, and natural killer (NK) cells. Further, MCP-1 is indicated in the etiology of several immune disorders, and is upregulated during infection and inflammation. While MCP-1 is a potent basophil activator, the related protein MCP-2 stimulates both eosinophils and basophils. MCP-3 has been shown to have the broadest range of influence. MCP-1 has been implicated in the pathogenesis of diseases characterized by monocytic infiltrates, like psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis or atherosclerosis.
