MIP-1a (macrophage inflammatory protein 1-alpha) also known as Chemokine (C-C motief) ligand 3 (CCL3), is a cytokine belonging to the CC chemokine family that is involved in the recruitment and activation of macrophages, monocytes and neutrophils. In this case, chemotaxis assay used 24-well microchemotaxis system was undertaken to evaluate the chemotactic effect of MIP-1a on the human monocytic cell line THP-1. Briefly, THP-1 cells were seeded into the upper chambers (100 μl cell suspension, 1x10⁶ cells/ml in RPMI-1640 with 0. 5% FBS) and MIP-1a (100 ng/ml, diluted in serum free RPMI-1640 ) was added in lower chamber with a polycarbonate filter (8μm pore size) used to separate the two compartments. After incubation at 37ºC with 5% CO₂ for 5h, the filter was removed, then cells in low chamber were observed by inverted microscope at low magnification (×40) and the number of migrated cells were counted at high magnification (×400) randomly (five fields for each filter). By counting migrated cells in low chamber at high magnification (×400) randomly. A mean of 41. 2 THP-1 cells/field migrated towards serum free RPMI-1640 medium with 100 ng/ml MIP-1a, while only 3. 6 THP-1 cells/field migrated towards serum free RPMI-1640 medium.
Lyophilized from 20 mM Tris (pH 8.0) with 150 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, 1 mM DTT, 0.01% SKL, 5% Trehalose, Proclin300. Reconstitute with 20 mM Tris and 150 mM NaCl (pH 8.0) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex.
For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, store at -20ºC or below. After reconstitution, keep as concentrated solution.Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

This locus represents a small inducible cytokine. The encoded protein, also known as macrophage inflammatory protein 1 alpha, plays a role in inflammatory responses through binding to the receptors CCR1, CCR4 and CCR5. Polymorphisms at this locus may be associated with both resistance and susceptibility to infection by human immunodeficiency virus type 1.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2010]
