|Cat. No. :
|C-C motif chemokine 7, also known as Monocyte chemoattractant protein 3, Monocyte chemotactic protein 3, MCP-3, Small-inducible cytokine A7, CCL7 and MCP3, is a secreted protein which belongs to the intercrine beta (chemokine CC) family. Chemokines and chemokine receptors are pivotal regulators of cellular communication and trafficking. In addition to the approximately 20 chemokine receptors that have been cloned and described, various orphan receptors with a chemokine receptor-like structure are known. CCL7 / MCP3 is a chemotactic factor that attracts monocytes and eosinophils, but not neutrophils. It augments monocyte anti-tumor activity. CCL7 / MCP3 also induces the release of gelatinase B. This protein can bind heparin. It also binds to CCR1, CCR2 and CCR3. Monocyte chemotactic protein 3 (MCP-3/CCL7), a CC chemokine able to attract and activate a large panel of leukocytes including natural killer cells and T lymphocytes, could be beneficial in antitumor therapy. CCL7 and CXCL10 play a critical role in mediating oxidative stress-induced neutrophilic airway inflammation.
