The chemokines are a group of chemotactic molecules that appear to regulate the directed movement of white blood cells in vitro and in vivo and may therefore play important roles in inflammation and immunity. The genes encoding the chemokines are clustered in close physical proximity to each other. A large cluster of human CC chemokine genes resides on chromosome 17. We have used this information in a positional cloning approach to identify novel chemokine genes within this cluster. We… CONTINUE READING
