Chemokines as chemoattractants and activators of leukocytes are involved in the development of inflammatory disorders and cancer. The CC chemokine CCL14 belongs to the chemokines with the highest concentration in human plasma with up to 10 nM and beyond. However, the primarily circulating proform of 74 amino acids (CCL141-74) is biologically almost inactive… CONTINUE READING
