XCL2 protein is expressed in E. coli, processed, refolded and purified to yield the native, secreted form of the mature chemokine.
XCL2 is a ligand for the G protein coupled receptor XCR1 with and EC50 ~ 50 nM. XCL2, along with the closely related paralog XCL1, are the only two members the C-chemokine subfamily (1). Like XCL1, XCL2 shares similar structural and agonist properties. It is able to interconvert between two distinct conformations under physiological temperature and NaCl conditions. In one conformation, XCL2 exists as a monomer and is able to bind to its receptor. In the other conformation, XCL2 exists as a dimer and loses affinity for XCR1 (2,3).
