Previously, we mapped the novel CC chemokine myeloid progenitor inhibitory factor 2 (MPIF-2)/eotaxin-2 to chromosome 7q11.23 (Nomiyama, H., Osborne, L. R., Imai, T., Kusuda, J., Miura, R., Tsui, L.-C., and Yoshie, O. (1998) Genomics 49, 339–340). Since chemokine genes tend to be clustered, unknown chemokines may be present in the vicinity of those mapped to new chromosomal loci. Prompted by this hypothesis, we analyzed the genomic region containing the gene for MPIF-2/eotaxin-2 (SCYA24) and… Expand
Murine Eotaxin-2: A Constitutive Eosinophil Chemokine Induced by Allergen Challenge and IL-4 Overexpression1
The generation of tissue eosinophilia is governed in part by chemokines; initial investigation has identified three chemokines in the human genome with eosinophil selectivity, referred to asExpand
N-terminal domain of eotaxin-3 is important for activation of CC chemokine receptor 3.
TLDR
The truncated eotaxin-3 proteins lacking the N-terminal eight or nine residues inhibited the chemotactic activity of chemokines that recognize CCR3, and can possibly be used for anti-allergic and anti-HIV-1 therapy. Expand
Detection of mRNA for eotaxin-2 and eotaxin-3 in human dermal fibroblasts and their distinct activation profile on human eosinophils.
TLDR
A distinct profile in expression levels of the members of the eotaxin family in dermal fibroblasts is indicated, which may help to understand further the role of CC chemokines in fibroblast/eosinophil activation, which is of interest particularly in allergic and autoimmune diseases. Expand
Eotaxin-3/CCL26 Is a Natural Antagonist for CC Chemokine Receptors 1 and 5
TLDR
Evidence is provided that eotaxin-3 acts as a natural antagonist on CCR1 and -5 as well, suggesting that it may have a modulatory rather than an inflammatory function. Expand
Bovine eotaxin (CCL11)--an unusual member of the eotaxin group--attracts eosinophils in vitro but is not responsible for eosinophilia in the ovary.
TLDR
Bovine eotaxin attracts eosinophils in vitro but is not responsible for eos inophilia in the ovary, and its unusual chimeric structure confirms the unity of the MCP/eotaxIn subfamily of CC chemokines and distinguishes it from other CC chemOKine subfamilies. Expand
Eotaxin-3 is a natural antagonist for CCR2 and exerts a repulsive effect on human monocytes.
TLDR
The data provide a mechanism by which 2 chemokine gradients that are oriented in opposite directions could cooperate in efficiently driving out monocytes from blood vessels into tissue. Expand
Structural and functional analysis of Ccr1l1, a Rodentia-restricted eosinophil-selective chemokine receptor homologue
TLDR
It is reported that Ccr1l1 is a Rodentia-specific gene selectively expressed in eosinophils and supported that it might respond to unidentified mouse chemokine ligands in eOSinophil-driven immune responses. Expand
High level expression, activation, and antagonism of CC chemokine receptors CCR2 and CCR3 in Chinese hamster ovary cells.
TLDR
Two new Chinese hamster ovary cell lines in which the genes for chemokine receptors CCR2 and CCR3 have been incorporated into identical positions in the host genome are described, confirming that eotaxin-1 and eotAXin-3 can act as an agonist and an antagonist, respectively, of C CR2. Expand
A novel CC-chemokine receptor 3 antagonist, Ki19003, inhibits airway eosinophilia and subepithelial/peribronchial fibrosis induced by repeated antigen challenge in mice.
TLDR
Findings indicate that CCR3 antagonism prevents not only the infiltration of eosinophils into the airways but also the development of allergen-induced subepithelial and peribronchial fibrosis, and may be useful in the treatment of airway remodeling in allergic asthma. Expand
The association of eotaxin-2 and eotaxin-3 gene polymorphisms in a Korean population with ulcerative colitis
TLDR
The results suggest that Eo 2 +179T>C and Eo2 +275C>T of eotaxin-2 might be associated with the susceptibility of UC. Expand

Novel lymphocyte‐specific CC chemokines and their receptors
TLDR
Five novel human CC chemokines termed TARC, LARC, ELC, SLC, and PARC are cloned and may constitute a new category of CC Chemokines that are involved in trafficking and homing of particular subsets of lymphocytes in particular lymphoid tissue microenvironments. Expand
Molecular Cloning of Human Eotaxin, an Eosinophil-selective CC Chemokine, and Identification of a Specific Eosinophil Eotaxin Receptor, CC Chemokine Receptor 3 (*)
TLDR
It is shown that human eotaxin is a potent and highly specific agonist for CC chemokine receptor 3, a G protein-coupled receptor selectively expressed in human eosinophils, and may be good targets for the development of selective drugs for inflammatory diseases where eos inophils contribute to pathogenesis, such as asthma.

Cloning, expression, and characterization of the human eosinophil eotaxin receptor
TLDR
CC CKR3 is the eosinophil eotaxin receptor, which expresses a much lower level of a second chemokine receptor, CC CKR1, which appears to be responsible for the effects of MIP-1 alpha. Expand

A novel human CC chemokine consisting of 78 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 8,778.3 daltons was isolated together with three minor COOH-terminally truncated variants with 73, 75, and 76 residues, which is functionally very similar to eotaxin and induced chemotaxis of eosinophils as well as basophils with typically bimodal concentration dependence.

It is suggested that basophils and eosinophils, which are the characteristic effector cells of allergic inflammation, depend largely on CCR3 for migration towards different chemokines into inflamed tissues. Expand
