Macrophage Inflammatory Protein-5 human recombinant produced in E. coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 68 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 7.4 kDa. CCL15, a new human CC chemokine, was isolated from a human fetal spleen cDNA library. CCL15 cDNA encodes a predicted 113 amino acid (aa) protein containing a putative signal peptide of 21 amino acids that is cleaved to generate a 92 aa residue mature protein. Within the CC family members, human CCL15 shares 45%, 44%, 35%, and 30% aa homology with mouse C10, human MPIF-1, human HCC-1, and mouse MIP-1?, respectively. The gene for MIP-5 is found on chromosome 17 where the genes for most of the human CC chemokines are located. human CCL15 is expressed in T and B lymphocytes, NK cells, monocytes and monocyte-derived dendritic cells. human MIP-5 is chemotactic for T cells and monocytes and has been shown to induce calcium flux in human CCR-1-transfected cells. Measured by its ability to chemoattract THP-1 human acute monocytic leukemia cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 2 - 4 ng/ml.
