Chemokines

/Chemokines

Chemokines are a family of pro-inflammatory activation-inducible cytokines, these proteins are mainly chemotactic for different cell types.
All Chemokines possess a number of conserved cysteine residues involved in intramolecular disulfide bond formation, which allows chemokines to be grouped into families according to the presence or absence of one or more conserved cysteine residues.
