Neutrophil-activating peptide-1/interleukin-8 (NAP-1/IL-8), secreted by monocytes, macrophages and a number of other cells, acts as a chemoattractant for neutrophil leukocytes and stimulates them to produce a series of responses such as shape change, adherence, exocytosis and respiratory burst, events that are of importance in inflammation.
