The HTRF human CCL3 (MIP1 alpha) kit is designed for the quantification of human CCL3 release in cell supernatant.



Also called MIP-1 alpha (macrophage inflammatory protein 1 alpha), CCL3 is a member of the MIP (macrophage inflammatory protein) family, which also includes CCL4 (MIP1 beta). This chemokine is secreted by monocytes, macrophages, T cells, and endothelial cells. CCL3 plays an important role in the activation of the inflammatory response by attracting monocyte-lineae cells and lymphocytes to inflammation sites. CCL3 has been reported as a stem cell inhibitory factor.

Assessment of serum samples often requires enhanced sensitivity. In some cases, AlphaLISA assays may have sufficient sensitivity to enable the detection of low levels of analytes in serum or plasma. Check out the Humant CCL3/MIP-1α AlphaLISA kit’s analytical performances for more information or learn more about AlphaLISA. When assaying, always follow the recommended protocol and avoid highly haemolyzed samples.



Assay principle

Cell supernatant, sample, or standard is dispensed directly into the assay plate for the detection by HTRF® reagents (384-well low-volume white plate or Cisbio low-volume 96-well plate in 20 µl). The antibodies labeled with the HTRF donor and acceptor are pre-mixed and added in a single dispensing step, to further streamline the assay procedure. The assay can be run up to a 1536-well format by simply resizing each addition volume proportionally.

Assay data analysis

The 4 Parameter Logistic (4PL) curve is commonly recommended for fitting an ELISA standard curve. This regression enables the accurate measurement of an unknown sample across a wider range of concentrations than linear analysis, making it ideally suited to the analysis of biological systems like cytokine releases.

CCL3 secretion in PBMC stimulated with LPS, IL1ß and TNFa

A dose response of LPS was performed on PBMC plated at 100,000 cells / well / 100 µL in a 96 well plate. Supernatants were diluted at 1/8th and 16µl of diluted samples were transferred into a Cisbio 96-well low volume white plate to be analyzed by the Human CCL3 kit.
