Chemokines and chemokine receptors play a critical role in the host defense against viruses by mobilizing leukocytes to sites of infection, injury and inflammation. In order to replicate successfully within their host organisms, viruses have devised novel strategies for exploiting or subverting chemokine networks. This review summarizes various mechanisms that are currently known to be used by viruses for modulating chemokine activities including viral homologs of chemokines and chemokine… CONTINUE READING
