MIP-1 Alpha ELISA Kit (Macrophage Inflammatory Protein-1 Alpha)


Human MIP-1 alpha ELISA kit is intended for detecting in vitro quantitative concentrations of macrophage inflammatory protein-1 alpha (MIP-1 alpha)(CCL3, LD78) in human serum, plasma (EDTA, citrate, heparin), tissue homogenates and various other biological fluids samples. This assay has a minimum detection limit of 14.063 pg/ml.


Macrophage inflammatory protein-1 alpha (MIP-1alpha, MIP-1 alpha) which can also be known as LD78 and CCL3, has a total molecular mass of 7,889 Da and the mature peptide consists of 69 amino acids. It is a cytokine which is part of the CC chemokine family and has vital roles in the acute inflammatory state in the recruitment and activation of polymorphonuclear leukocytes through binding the following specific receptors CCR1, CCR4 and CCR5. It has been also identified to shown to interact with CCL4, where it can attract macrophages, monocytes or neutrophils.

MIP-1 alpha is important for stem cell inhibitory and pro-inflammatory in vitro, there is also evidence that it can be involved in wound healing, tumorigenesis and inflammatory responses. In vivo it constitutes a vital second signal for mast cell degranulation in the conjunctiva and therefore consequently for many acute-phase diseases.


All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
