Species: Human
Immunopharmacology Comments
CXCL17 is a chemoattractant for dendritic cells and monocytes, and it potently attracts lung macrophages [1] and has broad antimicrobial activity [2]. Expression has been detected in some types of cancer cells, where its angiogenic action may be relevant [3]. Evidence suggests it may be an agonist of the orphan GPCR, GPR35 [4].
