BD Pharmingen™
CCL2; C-C motif chemokine 2; Chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 2; MCAF; SCYA2
Human (QC Testing), Rhesus, Cynomolgus (Tested in Development)
Mouse IgG1, κ
Recombinant Human MCP-1
ELISA Detection (Routinely Tested)
0.5 mg/ml
Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.


Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with biotin under optimum conditions, and unreacted biotin was removed.


ELISA Detection: Biotin Mouse Anti-Human MCP-1 (Cat. No. 554664) is useful as a detection antibody for a sandwich ELISA for measuring human MCP-1 protein levels.  Biotin Mouse Anti-Human MCP-1 can be paired with Purified Mouse Anti-Human MCP-1 (clone 10F7.2; Cat. No. 555055) as the capture antibody and recombinant human MCP-1 (Cat. No. 554620) as the standard. The Biotin Mouse Anti-Human MCP-1 should be titrated 0.5 - 4 µg/ml to determine the optimal concentration for ELISA detection. To obtain linear standard curves, doubling dilutions of human MCP-1 ranging from ~5,000 to 15 pg/ml are recommended for inclusion in each ELISA plate. For specific methodology, please visit the protocols section under "ELISA and ELISPOT" on our web site at

Note 1: This ELISA pair shows no cross-reactivity with any of the following chemokines tested ( e.g., Human eotaxin , MCP-2, MCP-3, MCP-4, mouse MCP-1 and rat MCP-1).

Note 2: This ELISA pair is recommended primarily for measuring cytokine from experimental cell culture systems. These ELISA reagents are not recommended for assaying serum or plasma samples. For measurement of human MCP-1 in serum or plasma samples the BD OptEIA™ Human MCP-1 ELISA Set (Cat. No. 555179) or the BD OptEIA™ Human MCP-1 ELISA Kit (Cat. No. 559017) are recommended.


  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
  3. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at
  4. Species cross-reactivity detected in product development may not have been confirmed on every format and/or application.
  5. Please refer to for technical protocols.

The 5D3-F7 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to human monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), also known as CCL2 (C-C motif chemokine 2), Monocyte chemotactic and activating factor (MCAF), and Small-inducible cytokine A2 (SCYA2). MCP-1 is a 10-14 kDa glycoprotein member of the beta or CC family of chemokines. It expressed by monocytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells and other cell types in response to IL-1, IL-6, TNF, and a variety of other stimuli. MCP-1 binds to and exerts its biological activity through G-protein coupled chemokine receptors including CCR2/CD192 and CCR4/CD194. It serves as a chemoattractant and activating factor for monocytes and other cell types including T cells, NK cells, and basophils.

MCP-1 is a member of the CC chemokine family and it is produced by monocytes, T lymphocytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, keratinocytes and some tumors. Its production can be induced by LPS or IFN-γ. Clone 5D3-F7 also cross reacts with an intracellular component of LPS-stimulated (24 hours) peripheral blood monocytes of rhesus and cynomolgus macaque monkeys. The staining pattern observed on non-human primate monocytes is not as strong as that seen on normal human peripheral blood monocytes.

Biotin is a ubiquitous co-factor (also known as Vitamin B7) that has many properties that make it extremely useful for molecular biology. Biotin has an extremely high affinity for the Avidin family of proteins (Kd = 10-15 M), making it the perfect tool to link two molecules. Biotin labeled antibodies can be combined with any number of Avidin-conjugated probes in order to customize an assay to a particular need. This is especially useful in the case of magnetic cell separation using streptavidin/magnetic bead conjugates, or in the case of flow cytometry using streptavidin/fluorophore conjugates.
