HOMOLOGY

FAMILY
  • intercrine alpha (chemokine CxC) family
  • CATEGORY signaling cytokine
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • T cells and NK cells chemoattractant
  • affecting the growth, movement, or activation state of cells that participate in immune and inflammatory response
  • roles in both host defense of the male urogenital tract and during fertilization
  • participate in immune and inflammatory responses through the chemoattraction and activation of polymorphonuclear neutrophils, T cells and B cells
  • promotes CXCR3-dependent immune-mediated kidney disease
  • recruit donor-reactive T cells to the allograft, and promotes the development of IFN-gamma-producing CD8 T cells
  • has immunomodulatory functions that are not mediated through a G-protein coupled receptor and may possess additional roles in host defenses against infection
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
