IL-8 plays a crucial role in acute inflammation by recruiting and mediating neutrophils and other cells and in initiating the oxidative burst in neutrophils and inducing wound healing by promoting angiogenesis. In the present study, the full-length cDNA and genome sequence of interleukin-8 (LcIL-8) were cloned from large yellow croaker Larimichthys crocea. The LcIL-8 cDNA sequence was 931 bp, containing a 118-bp 5'-untranslated region (UTR), a 528-bp 3'-UTR and a 285-bp open reading frame (ORF… CONTINUE READING
