MCP-1 ELISA Kit (Monocyte Chemotactic Protein 1)


Human MCP-1 ELISA kit is a protocol intended for analysing in vitro quantitative amounts of monocyte chemotactic protein 1 (MCP-1)(MCAF, LDCF, GDF) in human biological fluids, serum, plasma and tissue homogenates. This assay has a minimum detection limit of 9.375 pg/ml.


Monocyte chemotactic protein 1 (MCP1, MCP-1) which is also known as; MCAF, GDF and LDCF. It is composed of a 76-amino acid polypeptide with an approx. molecular mass of 8,700 Da and it belongs to a family low molecular weight structurally-related proteins that are characterised by four conserved cysteine residues (known as C-C or intercrine b family).

MCP-1 is expressed by many cultured cells such as; lymphocytes, endothelial cells, monocytes, smooth muscle cells, fibroblasts and many transformed cell lines upon stimulation with cytokines or LPS. In addition to being chemotactic for monocytes, it can also activate human monocytes in order to become cytostatic for many human tumour cell lines, generate superoxide and release lysosomal enzymes. In order to further clarify and elucidate the participation and relation of MCAF with various disorders, an in vivo quantitative analysis of this protein is necessary.


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.

Your secretory IgA ELISA gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

L. Johnston
PhD Student / University of Glasgow

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

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.
