Description…

CCL28 is a member of the small cytokine CC subfamily, and is involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. CC cytokines are characterized by two adjacent cysteines. CCL28 functions as a chemotactic factor for resting CD4 or CD8 T cells and eosinophils. CCL28 binds to CCR3 and CCR10 and induces calcium mobilization in a dose-dependent manner.

Resources

External Resources for CCL28

This antimicrobial gene belongs to the subfamily of small cytokine CC genes. Cytokines are a family of secreted proteins involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. The CC cytokines are proteins characterized by two adjacent cysteines. The cytokine encoded by this gene displays chemotactic activity for resting CD4 or CD8 T cells and eosinophils. The product of this gene binds to chemokine receptors CCR3 and CCR10. This chemokine may play a role in the physiology of extracutaneous epithelial tissues, including diverse mucosal organs. Multiple transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene.
