Regulation of adaptive immunity by the fractalkine receptor during autoimmune inflammation.


Fractalkine, a chemokine anchored to neurons or peripheral endothelial cells, serves as an adhesion molecule or as a soluble chemoattractant. Fractalkine binds CX3CR1 on microglia and circulating monocytes, dendritic cells, and NK cells. The aim of this study is to determine the role of CX3CR1 in the trafficking and function of myeloid cells to the CNS… (More)
