The chemokines CXCL9, CXCL10, and CXCL11 differentially stimulate G alpha i-independent signaling and actin responses in human intestinal myofibroblasts.


Intestinal myofibroblasts have been implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic inflammatory conditions such as Crohn's disease via interactions with an elaborate network of cytokines, growth factors, and other inflammatory mediators. CXCR3 is a Galpha(i) protein-coupled receptor that binds the proinflammatory chemokines CXCL9, CXCL10, and CXCL11, which are… (More)
