Molecular cloning and mRNA expression analysis of interleukin-8 gene in Japanese sea perch (Lateolabrax japonicus)

Abstract

Interleukin-8 (IL-8), the first known chemokine, is a CXC chemokine, which is cable of attracting neutrophils and inducing them to release lysozomal enzymes, triggering the respiratory burst. In the present study, the cDNA of an IL-8 was cloned from Japanese sea perch Lateolabrax japonicus (designated LjIL-8) by homology cloning and rapid amplification of… (More)
