STORAGE:  2-8 C in the dark.

IMPORTANT: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

Chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 13 (CCL13) that was previously called monocyte-specific chemokine 4 (MCP4) and small inducible cytokine A13 (SYCA13) is a small cytokine belonging to the CC chemokine family. CCL13 induces chemotaxis in monocytes, eosinophils, T lymphocytes, and basophils by binding cell surface G-protein linked chemokine receptors such as CCR2, CCR3 and CCR5. Activity of this chemokine has been implicated in allergic reactions such as asthma. CCL13 can be induced by the inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1 and TNF-α. Diseases associated with CCL13 include far eastern spotted fever and spotted fever.
