CCL27 is a member of the CC cytokine family, and is involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. CC cytokines are characterized by two adjacent cysteines. CCL27 functions as a chemotactic factor that attracts skin-associated memory T-lymphocytes. CCL27 may also play a role in mediating homing of lymphocytes to cutaneous sites. CCL27 binds specifically to chemokine receptor 10 (CCR10).

External Resources for CCL27

This gene is one of several CC cytokine genes clustered on the p-arm of chromosome 9. Cytokines are a family of secreted proteins involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. The CC cytokines are proteins characterized by two adjacent cysteines. The protein encoded by this gene is chemotactic for skin-associated memory T lymphocytes. This cytokine may also play a role in mediating homing of lymphocytes to cutaneous sites. It specifically binds to chemokine receptor 10 (CCR10). Studies of a similar murine protein indicate that these protein-receptor interactions have a pivotal role in T cell-mediated skin inflammation.
