Cloning and characterization of mouse homolog of the CXC chemokine receptor CXCR1.

Abstract

CXCR2/IL-8RB was the only receptor previously reported in mice for ELR+ CXC chemokines, whereas the receptors for these chemokines in human include both CXCR1 and CXCR2. In this study, we cloned the full length cDNA of the mouse CXCR1 (mCXCR1) gene. The deduced amino acid of mCXCR1 was 77% and 58% identical to the rat and human CXCR1, respectively. RT-PCR… (More)
