Chemokines are not only mediators of the immune system and expressed in inflammatory situations. They are also constitutively expressed in the brain in both glial cells and neurons. Several recent evidence suggest that they can have a neurotransmitter/neuromodulatory role on brain functions similar to several neuropeptides reported so far. The aim of this short review is to illustrate that point using two chemokine systems, SDF-1/CXCL12 and its receptor CXCR4 and MCP-1/CCL2 and its receptor… 
Alcohol–Chemokine Interaction and Neurotransmission
TLDR
Chemokines that act to recruit cells of the immune system to a site of injury or infection are considered to be proinflammatory chemokines, whereas chemokine that are involved in chemotaxis during normal processes of tissue maintenance or development are considered of homeostatic in function.
The emerging role for chemokines in epilepsy
TLDR
In the light of recent advances in understanding of the role of inflammation mechanisms in the pathogenesis of epilepsy, pro-inflammatory chemokines may play a critical role in epilepsy.
Role of Chemokines in CNS Health and Pathology: A Focus on the CCL2/CCR2 and CXCL8/CXCR2 Networks
TLDR
The value of evidence obtained from the use of Ccl2- and Cxcr2-deficient mice will be reported, in the context of potential therapeutics inhibiting chemokine activity which are currently in clinical trial for various inflammatory diseases.
Cytokines, Masticatory Muscle Inflammation, and Pain: an Update
TLDR
Several types of pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators and their relation with inflammatory pain in masticatory muscles are discussed.
Stimulatory role of the chemokine CCL2 in the migration and peptide expression of embryonic hypothalamic neurons
TLDR
Evidence is provided for a stimulatory effect of CCL2 on embryonic hypothalamic neurons involving changes in migratory behavior, expression, and synthesis of neuropeptides that function in controlling behavior.
A Potential Contribution of Chemokine Network Dysfunction to the Depressive Disorders
TLDR
The role of chemokine in the central nervous system under physiological and pathological conditions and their involvement in processes underlying depressive disorder are outlined.
Cytokines and brain excitability
TLDR
Findings from both the clinical literature and from in vivo and in vitro laboratory studies suggest that cytokines can increase seizure susceptibility and may be involved in epileptogenesis.
The chemokine CXCL16 modulates neurotransmitter release in hippocampal CA1 area
TLDR
It is demonstrated for the first time that CXCL16 exerts a modulatory activity on inhibitory and excitatory synaptic transmission in CA1 area and it is found that CxCL16 increases the frequency of the miniature inhibitory synaptic currents and the paired-pulse ratio of evoked IPSCs, suggesting a presynaptic modulation of the probability of GABA release.
The Role of Some Chemokines from the CXC Subfamily in a Mouse Model of Diabetic Neuropathy
TLDR
Findings indicate that the chemokines CXCL1, C XCL5, CxCL9, and CXCl12 are important in nociceptive transmission and may play a role in the development of diabetic neuropathy.
A broad upregulation of cerebral chemokine genes by peripherally-generated inflammatory mediators
TLDR
PIC challenge elicits a broad upregulation of cerebral chemokine genes, and this upregulation is mediated by blood-borne agents, and could be induced in naïve mice by transfer of blood plasma from PIC-challenged mice.

Chemokines: a new class of neuromodulator?
TLDR
These findings, together with the pharmacological development of agonists and antagonists that are selective for chemokine receptors and can cross the blood–brain barrier, open a new era of research in neuroscience.
Differential production of and migratory response to beta chemokines by human microglia and astrocytes.
TLDR
The results of this in vitro study suggest that beta chemokines may play an important role in the trafficking of mononuclear phagocytes within the brain.
The chemokine SDF-1/CXCL12 modulates the firing pattern of vasopressin neurons and counteracts induced vasopressin release through CXCR4.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that chemokine actions in the brain are not restricted to inflammatory processes and proposed to add to the known autoregulation of AVP on its own neurons, a second autocrine system induced by SDF-1 able to modulate central AVP neuronal activity and release.
Multiple actions of the chemokine stromal cell-derived factor-1alpha on neuronal activity.
TLDR
This review focuses on current knowledge about the actions of this chemokine on neuronal excitability, through CXCR4 or other yet unknown pathways, and the possible mechanisms underlying these effects and their consequences in terms of modulation of neuroendocrine systems and physiopathology are discussed.
Chemokines and disease
TLDR
Several diseases that are associated with inappropriate activation of the chemokine network are examined, including cardiovascular disease, allergic inflammatory disease, transplantation, neuroinflammation, cancer and HIV-associated disease.
Constitutive expression of CCR2 chemokine receptor and inhibition by MCP‐1/CCL2 of GABA‐induced currents in spinal cord neurones
TLDR
The aim of the present work was to investigate further, both in vivo and in vitro, CC Chemokine Family Receptor 2 (CCR2) expression and functionality in rat spinal cord neurones, and to contribute to the understanding of the roles of CCR2 and MCP‐1/CCL2 in spinal cord physiology, in particular with respect to nociceptive transmission.
Rapid chemokine secretion from endothelial cells originates from 2 distinct compartments.
TLDR
It is proposed that rapid release of chemokines is restricted to those primarily recruiting leukocytes of the innate immune system, and that their storage in ECs is not restricted to the WPB compartment.
Production and function of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and other β-chemokines in murine glial cells
TLDR
Findings suggested that astrocytes and microglial cells differentially produce chemokines in the central nervous system, and that both astroCytes and T cells may facilitate recruitment and activation of microglia and macrophages via production of beta-chemokines.
Electrophysiological analysis of neuronal chemokine receptors.
TLDR
Electrophysiological methods used to study the normal and pathophysiological role for CKRs in the nervous system are presented and single-cell reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction is discussed as a technique that can be used in conjunction with patch-clamp recording to further investigate the molecular basis of neuronal CKR activation.
Monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP)-1 is rapidly expressed by sympathetic ganglion neurons following axonal injury
TLDR
ED1-immunoreactive macrophages, absent from the superior cervical ganglia of normal rats, appear in these ganglia within 48 h after postganglionic axotomy, and axotomy-induced neuronal MCP-1 expression may trigger the infiltration and/or activation of macrophage in SCG after injury.
