Rantes ELISA Kit (CCL5)


Human Rantes ELISA kit is intended for measuring in vitro quantitative levels of regulated on activation normal T cell expressed and secreted (rantes)(CCL5) in human biological fluids, serum, tissue homogenates and plasma (citrate, EDTA, heparin). This assay has a minimum detection limit of 18.75 pg/ml.


Rantes is also known as Chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 5 (CCL5), is essentially a natural ligand for the chemokine receptor CCR5 and has the ability to potently suppress the in vitro replication of R5 strains of HIV-1, that is using CCR5 as a co-receptor. It is chemotactic for basophils, eosinophils and T cells, it also plays a vital role in the recruitment of into inflammatory sites. The gene product is predicted to be 10 kDa and after cleavage of the signal peptide, approx. 8 kDa. From the 68 residues remaining, where 4 are cysteines and none are N-linked glycosylated.

Rantes is usually expressed by cultured T cell lines that are growth factor dependent and antigen specific. There is evidence that it can induce the activation and proliferation of a number of natural-killer cells to form CHAK Chemokine-activated killer) cells with the aid of particular cytokines (in particular IL-2 and IFN-γ). CCL5 is also known as a HIV-suppressive factor that can be released from CD8+ T cells. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells or CD4(+) lymphocytes that are obtained from different individuals have been found to display a wide variations in their ability to secrete rantes.

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.
