MCP-1

Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1. An older term for a CC cytokine which is critical for development of atherosclerotic lesions, found in endothelial cells, macrophages and in vascular smooth muscle cells of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass procedures. The officially preferred term is now chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 2.

MCP-1 antibody (1:1000 dilution) and [beta]-actin antibody (1:1000 dilution) were added to the membrane and incubated at 4[degrees]C overnight.
We previously reported that activation of endogenous AMPK by 2,4-dinitrophenol or AICAR significantly decreases the release of MCP-1 from mature 3T3-L1 adipocytes [13].
The results showed that the protein expression level of p-P65 was significantly lower than that of the Ad-NC group (Figure 3(c)), and the mRNA expression levels of IL-6 and MCP-1 were significantly increased compared with those of the si-control group (P < 0.01), while the mRNA expression level of anti-inflammatory factor APN was significantly decreased compared with that of the si-control group (p <0.05Figure 3(d)).
Cross-sectional study design was applied to compare the difference in serum level of cytokines, IL-1[beta], TNF-[alpha] and MCP-1, between schizophrenia patients and HCs.
MCP-1, IFN-[gamma], IL-4, IL-2 and IL-10 kits (Shenzhen Jingmei Biological Engineering Co., Ltd., China) were counterbalanced at room temperature for 20 min.
Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyze the factors engaged in monocyte activation, migration, and their transition into macrophages, by assessing the concentrations of MCP-1, MCSF, and neopterin, in the serum and urine of children with CKD and of controls.
The PCR-RFLP methods of IL-8 (-251A>T), MCP-1 (-2518A>G), RANTES (-28C>G), CCR-2 (V64I), and CCR-5 (-[DELTA]32) polymorphisms were administered, as shown in Table 1.
Recombinant human IL-1[beta], IL-6, TNF-[alpha], MCP-1, and SDF-1[alpha] were purchased from Miltenyi Biotec (Bergisch Gladbach, Germany).
In patients with CKD, a positive correlation between serum levels of MCP-1 and cRp (R = 0.38; p = 0.0002) and a negative correlation between serum levels of MCP-1 and eGFR (r = -0.29; p = 0.006) were found after supplementation.
This process is primarily mediated by several intracellular signaling events, leading to the elevated expression of a number of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor-[alpha] (TNF-[alpha]), interleukin-6 (1L-6) and several pro-inflammatory chemokines such as interleukin-8 (IL-8) and monocyte chemoattractant rotein-1 (MCP-1) (Ramji DP and Davies TS, 2015; Drechsler M, et al.
In this study, we investigated the extent to which adipocytes contribute to overall increases in oxLDL-mediated MCP-1 levels in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.
NF-[kappa]B staining was seen in the nuclei of acinar cells, and MCP-1 activation was found in the cytoplasms of acini and ductal cells.
