CXCL12α   

GtoPdb Ligand ID: 4358

Synonyms: CXCL12 α | SDF-1α | stromal cell-derived factor-1α
Comment: CXCL12-1α and β were the first isoforms of this chemokine identified. Both proteins contain a signal peptide sequence that mediates their secretion via the canonical intracellular secretory pathway. CXCL12 participates in a variety of processes central to homeostasis and physiology, exerting its biological effects by binding to the chemokine receptors CXCR4 and CXCR7.
