|Synonyms||LIX, Epithelial Neutrophil Activating Peptide-78, CXCL5, ENA-78|
|Description||LPSinduced CXC chemokine (LIX), also known as C-X-C motif chemokine 5(CXCL5), is a small cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family that is also known as epithelial-derived neutrophil-activating peptide 78 (ENA-78). It is produced following stimulation of cells with the inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1 or tumor necrosis factor-alpha. Rat LIX cDNA encodes a 130 aa residue precursor with a predicted 37 aa residue signal peptide and a 93 aa residue mature protein. Among human CXC chemokines, rat LIX is most closely related to human GCP-2 and ENA-78.LIX can signal through the CXCR2 receptor.
Recombinant rat LIX/CXCL5 (88aa) produced in CHO cells is a polypeptide chain containing 88 amino acids. A fully biologically active molecule, rrLIX/CXCL5 (88aa) has a molecular mass of 9.6 kDa analyzed by reducing SDS-PAGE and is obtained by chromatographic techniques at GenScript.
|Biological Activity||The EC50 value of rat LIX/CXCL5 (88aa) on Ca2+ mobilization assay in CHO-K1/G15/rCXCR2 cells (human Ga15 and rat CXCR2 stably expressed in CHO-K1 cells) is less than 3 μg/ml.|
