Disease relevance of Ccl12


High impact information on Ccl12


Biological context of Ccl12

  • CCL2 and CCL12 are both elevated in the lung after FITC injury, but with different kinetics [1].
  • 0. Microsequence analyses showed that two polypeptides of about 29 and 30 kDa had NH2 terminal amino acid sequences homologous to mouse MC proteinase 5 (MCP-5), whereas the amino terminals of the 33, 35, and 36 kDa proteins were homologous to MC carboxypeptidase A (MC-CPA) [5].
  • Based on the expression on various mast cell-specific proteases and several additional hematopoietic differentiation markers, the cell lines CFTL-15 and MCP5 / L were clearly identified as mast cells, although with a relatively immature phenotype [6].
  • Murine mast cells of line MCP5/L were used to investigate the effect of antigenic stimulation on cell adhesion to fN and mediator secretion. effect of antigenic stimulation on cell adhesion to FN and mediator secretion [7].

Anatomical context of Ccl12


Associations of Ccl12 with chemical compounds

  • However, addition of recombinant IFN-gamma resulted in markedly increased secretion of MCP-1 and MCP-5 only in the cells derived from estrogen-treated mice [11].
  • RT-PCR and cytofluorimetric analysis were used to assess the expression of alpha 5 integrin in MCP5/L mast cells [12].

Other interactions of Ccl12

  • A kinetic analysis showed that chemokines tended to increase with stimulation time, but only MCP-1 and MCP-5 showed a biological trend of increasing in splenocytes from estrogen-treated mice, and KC was decreased significantly in estrogen-treated splenocytes at 18 h [11].
  • ELISA for MCP-1 and MCP-5 showed similar results [8].
  • Real-time polymerase chain reaction revealed a plaque progression-dependent increase in mRNA levels of MCP-1, MCP-5, MIP-1alpha, and MIP-1beta [8].
  • An inhibiting antibody for MCP-1 and MCP-5 (11K2) was designed and administered to ApoE-/- mice for 12 weeks starting at the age of 5 or 17 weeks [8].
  • Murine bone marrow-cultured mast cells (BMCMC) and peritoneal mast cells, as well as two mast cell lines (C57 and MCP-5), constitutively expressed Fas Ag [13].
