Interleukin-8 (IL-8) is an inflammatory mediator that stimulates neutrophil migration and functional activation. Analogs of human IL-8 were chemically synthesized, purified, and compared with the full-length 72-residue synthetic IL-8 for their ability to stimulate neutrophil chemotaxis and exocytosis as measured by assaying for release of elastase, as well as their binding to specific receptors in competition assays. Analogs corresponding to the less abundant natural forms, 3-72, 4-72, and 77… CONTINUE READING
