Involvement of a novel chemokine decoy receptor CCX-CKR in breast cancer growth, metastasis and patient survival.

PURPOSE The biological axes of chemokines and chemokine receptors, such as CXCR4/CXCL12, CCR7/CCL19 (CCL21), CCR9/CCL25, and CXCR5/CXCL13, are involved in cancer growth and metastasis. This study is aimed at the potential regulatory role of atypical chemokine binder CCX-CKR, as a scavenger of CCL19, CCL21, CCL25, and CXCL13, in human breast cancer… CONTINUE READING
