Monocyte Chemotactic Protein-1 (MCP-1) ELISA
BioMarkers | Diabetic Nephropathy | Inflammation
The K-ASSAY®Human Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 (MCP-1) ELISA is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative determination of MCP-1 in human cell culture supernatant, serum, plasma and amniotic fluid.
MCP-1, also known as CCL2 and monocyte chemotactic and activating factor (MCAF), is one of the most thoroughly studied CC chemokines. It plays a central role in the recruitment of monocytes, T lymphocytes and NK cells to sites of injury/inflammation. In the vasculature, MCP-1 released by endothelial and smooth muscle cells binds to its complementary receptor (CCR2) on monocytes leading to their infiltration and activation in the subluminal space.
Elevated levels of MCP-1 is seen in diseases with a strong inflammatory component, such as atherosclerosis, nephropathy, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
