A CXC chemokine sequence isolated from the rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss resembles the closely related interferon-gamma-inducible chemokines CXCL9, CXCL10 and CXCL11.

A sequence encoding a CXC - type chemokine from rainbow trout was found to most resemble members of the CXCL9/CXCL10/CXCL11 sub-family. In mammals, all 3 chemokines are regulated by IFN-gamma and are chemotactic for activated T lymphocytes. The trout chemokine (gammaIP1), with a message of 787 nucleotides, contains 100 amino acids in a typical non-ELR CXC… CONTINUE READING
