Chemokines contribute to the inflammatory response by selective attraction of various leukocytic cell types. Human GCP-2 was originally identified by amino acid sequence analysis as a CXC chemokine co-produced with IL-8 by osteosarcoma cells. Furthermore, the complete coding domain of human GCP-2 was disclosed by means of RT-PCR. Similarly, mouse GCP-2 was isolated from fibroblastoid and epithelial cells and completely identified by sequence analysis. Human and mouse GCP-2 share 61% identical… CONTINUE READING
