A novel CC chemokine was identified in the thymus of mouse and human and was designated TECK (thymus-expressed chemokine). TECK has weak homology to other CC chemokines and maps to mouse chromosome 8. Besides the thymus, mRNA encoding TECK was detected at substantial levels in the small intestine and at low levels in the liver. The source of TECK in the… CONTINUE READING
