Background of Ccl2

Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), a member of the chemokine (chemotactic cytokine) family, is a potent monocyte agonist that is upregulated by oxidized lipids.1 MCP-1 is also known as CCL2, SCYA2, MCAF. MCAF is a member of family of factors involved in immune and inflammatory responses. The amino acid sequence deduced from the nucleotide sequence reveals the primary structure of the MCAF precursor to be composed of a putative signal peptide sequence of 23 amino acid residues and a mature MCAF sequence of 76 amino acid residues.2 MCP-1 plays a unique and crucial role in the initiation of atherosclerosis and may provide a new therapeutic target in this disorder.3

9 Customer Q&As for Rat MCP-1 ELISA Kit PicoKine®

Question

Q: which procedure should I follow in order to thaw whole blood sample for CCL2 ELISA after freezing?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-11-16

Answer

A: do not freeze and thaw whole blood. erythrocytes are fragile and, if frozen and thawed, will undergo hemolysis rendering the samples useless. To keep your blood samples to test CCL2 for a later time, you should let the blood clot in glass tubes and collect the serum to freeze for later use.

Question

Does the lyophilized Rat Ccl2 standard supplied in EK0902 contain Sodium Azide (in buffer composition before lyophilization)?

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-09-08

Answer

The lyophilized standard supplied in the Rat MCP-1 ELISA Kit PicoKine™ (EK0902) contains 0.38% of Sodium Azide, which is higher than in the buffer before lyophilization.

Question

Q: we need your suggestion regarding the dilution ratio of serum samples for detection of CCL2 in Rat serum? I am trying to measure a few analytes and it requires 100ul of diluted samples for each well. We have limited sample volumes so we like to dilute as much as possible.

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-08-16

Answer

A: having little idea about the physiological or pathological context of your samples we cannot recommend a dilution ratio without performing a pilot test with your samples. Here is how you can perform a pilot study on your own: perform a serial dilution of your samples on the CCL2 ELISA kit to make sure you have a linear ascending curve followed by a plateau, which signifies the samples saturating the detection limit of the kit. Then you can pick the dilution ratios from samples in the linear part of the curve as your experimental dilution ratio.
If you are interested in using our ELISA service, you can also send us your sample and we will take care of everything for you. You can check our service details here: bosterbio.com/services/assay-services/ELISA-testing-service
Since you mentioned you have limited samples, our cost effective multiplex ELISA service would fit perfectly for your needs, where we can generate dozens of data points using as little as 25ul sample volume. Information on this service is also in the above link.

C. Turner

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-05-28

Answer

A: The Picokine® ELISA Kits will generally run a 7-point standard curve, non-specific binding wells, and 39 samples in duplicate. this may depends upon the kit used so please refer to each datasheet for details.

Question

Q: Can CCL2 ELISA Kits be used with tissue homogenates (or other non-validated sample types)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-10-16

Answer

A: Unfortunately, Boster Bio has not routinely validated tissue homogenates as a sample type for ELISA kits. This does not mean that ELISA kits are not suitable for other sample types than we have tested: it means further investigation is required. One will need to perform a spike and recovery study to determine if an unvalidated sample type will work with a particular kit. To perform a spike and recovery experiment, one should divide a sample into two aliquots. In one of the aliquots, the user should spike in a known amount of the kit standard. a dilution series is performed comparing the spiked versus the unspiked sample. Generally, samples with expected recovery and linearity between 80-120% are considered acceptable. This method can be used to validate any sample type that has not been assessd by Boster Bio. for a more detailed spike and recovery protocol, please contact technical support.
Note: acceptable ranges should be determined individually by each laboratory. Additionally, technical support can help determine if a buffer component is not compatible with a given ELISA kit. please view the Citations tab on the product webpage for peer-reviewed papers utilizing a wide range of sample types. We also have an innovator's reward program where if the user validates our ELISA kits in applications or samples previously not validated by Boster Bio or other users, and share such information with us by submit a review, we will reward the user's efforts with a free antibody or ELISA kit from our catalog. Biocompare.com will also give $20 Amazon giftcard as an additional reward, if the review is submitted there as well.

Question

Q: for how much duration can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for measurement CCL2 using the EK0902 Rat CCL2 Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-02-03

Answer

A: Boster Bio does not evaluate sample stability. Variations in sample collection, processing, and storage may change the stabilityof samples. It is recommend to assay sample right after collection when possible, or aliquot into single use volumes and store samples frozen. avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles with the stored samples to prevent protein degradation.

Question

I am interested to purchase the product Rat MCP-1 ELISA Kit PicoKine and would like to ask if this kit is suitable for detecting MCP-1 in rat urine?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2013-07-04

Answer

The product Rat MCP-1 ELISA Kit PicoKine has not been validated in rat urine samples however, in our previous testing with our ELISA kit it is likely to work with urine. We recommend some general guidelines for the preparation of urine samples; Collect the samples without adding stabilizers, spin down hard at 10000 x g for 1min, the aliquot freeze quickly in dry ice or methanol bath and store in -80C until use. We suggest to start with minimal dilution such as 2 fold since cytokine levels is often very low in urine.
