Chemokine CCL8 definition: A monocyte chemoattractant protein that attracts MONOCYTES; LYMPHOCYTES; BASOPHILS; and EOSINOPHILS. Chemokine CCL8 has specificity for CCR3 RECEPTORS and CCR5 RECEPTORS.
Small Inducible Cytokine A8 definition: This cytokine displays chemotactic activity for monocytes, lymphocytes, basophils and eosinophils. By recruiting leukocytes to sites of inflammation this cytokine may contribute to tumor-associated leukocyte infiltration and to the antiviral state against HIV infection. (from LocusLink)
Small Inducible Cytokine A8 definition: Chemokines, a family of small cytokines, attract leukocytes and possess various immunomodulating functions. CC chemokines influence mononuclear cell types. Human Macrophage Chemoattractant Protein-2 is a chemotactic factor for monocytes, lymphocytes, basophils and eosinophils. This monomer or homodimer can bind heparin. Its expression is induced by interferon gamma, mitogens, and IL-1. (from OMIM 602283, Swiss-Prot P80075, and NCI)
