Chemokines in teleost fish species.

Evolution and function of chemokine receptors in the immune system of lower vertebrates

This review will discuss how the evolution of the chemokine receptor CXCR4 is coincident with the emergence of lymphocytes in jawless vertebrates (lamprey); and that, in jawed vertebrates, CX CR4 and CCR9 are involved in thymus colonization.



Defining the Origins and Evolution of the Chemokine/Chemokine Receptor System1

This study establishes a clear evolutionary model of the chemokine system and trace the origin of the chemistry system to ∼650 million years ago, identifying critical steps in their evolution and demonstrating a more extensive chemistry system in fish than previously thought.

Catfish CC chemokines: genomic clustering, duplications, and expression after bacterial infection with Edwardsiella ictaluri

The catfish CC chemokine genes were found to be not only highly clustered in the catfish genome, but also extensively duplicated at various levels, which may help to explain the modes of duplication and divergence that resulted in the present repertoire of vertebrateCC chemokines.

Cloning of two chemokine receptor homologs (CXC‐R4 andCC‐R7)in rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss

R reverse transcriptase‐polymerase chain reaction analysis demonstrated a wide tissue distribution of CXC‐R4 and CC‐R7 message in trout, being present in head‐kidney leukocytes, blood, gill, brain, spleen, and liver.

Chemokines and Their Receptors in the Central Nervous System

It is now evident that chemokines and their receptors represent a plurifunctional family of proteins whose actions on the CNS are not restricted to neuroinflammation.

Chemokine receptors in the brain: their role in HIV infection and pathogenesis.

Aberrant regulation of chemokine expression is also associated with some chronic inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, atherogenesis, and glomerulonephritis.

Chemokine receptors and their role in inflammation and infectious diseases.

This review will discuss structural and functional aspects of chemokine receptor biology and will consider the roles these receptors play in inflammation and in infectious diseases.

Recent advances in chemokines and chemokine receptors.

The molecules that have come from the most recent years of chemokine research as well as many of the new functions that have been ascribed to them are reviewed.

CC Chemokine Receptor 5-Mediated Signaling and HIV-1 Co-receptor Activity Share Common Structural Determinants

An important role is ascribed for the second and third extracellular loop of CCR5 in supporting the co-receptor activity of C CR5 and evidence that the intracytoplasmic tail of Ccr5 does not play an important role in supporting HIV-1 entry is provided.

Dancing to the tune of chemokines

Recent advances in the elucidation of the signal transduction that occurs in proximity to receptors and that leads to the early biochemical events in leukocyte activation are discussed.
