Chemokine-chemokine receptor interaction plays an essential role in leukocyte/dendritic cell (DC) trafficking in inflammation and immune responses. We investigated the pathophysiological roles of secondary lymphoid tissue chemokine (SLC; CCL21) and macrophage inflammatory protein-2 (MIP-2) in the development of acute pulmonary inflammation induced by an… CONTINUE READING
