|Synonyms||Epithelial Neutrophil Activating Peptide-78, CXCL5|
|Description||Epithelial cellderived neutrophilactivating peptide (ENA78) also known as C-X-C motif chemokine 5(CXCL5), is a small cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family. It is produced following stimulation of cells with the inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1 or tumor necrosis factor-alpha. Expression of CXCL5 has also been observed in eosinophils, and can be inhibited with the type II interferon, IFN-γ. This chemokine stimulates the chemotaxis of neutrophils possessing angiogenic properties. Full length CXCL5 (78 aa) is trimmed at the Nterminal end by cathepsin G and chymotrypsin to ENA-74 (74 aa) and ENA-70 (70aa), with the shortened forms showing increased potency relative to full length CXCL5. CXCL5can signal through the CXCR2 receptor.
Recombinant human ENA-78/CXCL5 (5-78a.a.) produced in E.coli is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 74 amino acids. A fully biologically active molecule, rh ENA-78/CXCL5 (5-78a.a.) has a molecular mass of 8 kDa analyzed by reducing SDS-PAGE and is obtained by chromatographic techniques at GenScript.
|Biological Activity||The EC50 value of human ENA-78/CXCL5 (5-78a.a.) on Ca2+ mobilization assay in CHO-K1/ Gα15/hCXCR2 cells (human Gα15 and human CXCR2 stably expressed in CHO-K1 cells) is less than 50 ng/ml.|
