    FAMILY
  • intercrine beta family
  • CATEGORY signaling cytokine
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • having antibacterial activity of great potency
  • chemotactic factor attracting lymphocytes and, slightly, neutrophils, but not monocytes
  • having the ability to stimulate odontoblast differentiation in addition to role in inflammation
  • earlier inducer of osteoclast differentiation by increasing the number of pre-osteoclasts, thus favoring cell fusion and MMP9 release
