RANTES (Regulation upon Activation Normal T cell Express Sequence)
RANTES is a CC chemokine that can signal through the CCR1, CCR3, CCR5 and US28 (cytomegalovirus receptor) receptors. It is a chemoattractant towards monocytes, memory T cells (CD4+/CD45RO), basophils, and eosinophils. RANTES also has the capability to inhibit certain strains of HIV-1, HIV-2 and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV). Recombinant Human RANTES is a 7.8 kDa protein containing 68 amino acid residues, including the four highly conserved cysteine residues present in the CC chemokines.

This was determined by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analysis.
Determined by its ability to chemoattract human blood monocytes using a concentration range of 1.0-10.0 ng/ml.
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex.
This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 week. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.
