LAG-1 is CC chemokine that signals through the CCR5 receptor. LAG-1 is identical to MIP-1β (ACT II isotype) except for two amino acid substitutions; arginine for histidine at position 22 and serine for glycine at position 47 of the mature protein. LAG-1 chemoattracts monocytes, and exhibits activity as an HIV-suppressive factor. Recombinant Human LAG-1 is a 7.7 kDa protein containing 69 amino acid residues.
Amino Acid Sequence
Determined by it's ability to chemoattract CCR5 transfected cells using a concentration of 0.1–10.0 ng/ml
Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/μg of protein (<1EU/μg).
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1–1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. 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.
