XCL1 protein is expressed in E. coli, processed, refolded and purified to yield the native, secreted form of the mature chemokine.
XCL1 is a ligand for the G protein-coupled receptor XCR1 with and EC50 ~ 50 nM. It has been shown the WT XCL1 is able to interconvert between two distinct conformations under physiological conditions. In one conformation, XCL1 exists as a monomer and is able to bind to its receptor. In the other conformation, XCL1 exists as a dimer and loses affinity for XCR1 (1,2).
