Data Sheet

Background: CCR2 (C-C chemokine receptor type 2 or monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 receptor) is a receptor for the MCP-1, MCP-3 and MCP-4 chemokines. It is also an alternative coreceptor with CD4 for HIV-1 infection. CCR2 has been widely considered as a potential therapeutic target for autoimmune disease and inflammatory disorders of the lung, particularly rheumatoid arthritis, and various CCR2 blocking agents have been developed, some of which might have therapeutic values.

Application: Functional assays
