General Information

Biological Significance Chemokines (chemoattractant cytokines) represent a superfamily of small secreted proteins that function as intercellular messengers to control migration and activation of leukocytes involved in inflammatory reactions and immunity. Furthermore, chemokines are important mediators of many pathologies such as allergic responses,chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, tumor growth and hematopoietic development. The CC-chemokine monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP1), also known as monocyte chemotactic and activating factor (MCAF) wascharacterized as a monocyte-specific chemoattractant that was later shown to attract also T lymphocytes and NK cells.MCP1 is mainly expressed by macrophages in response to a wide range of cytokines such as IL6, TNF alpha and IL1 beta, but can, upon stimulation, also be produced by a variety of cells and tissues, such as fibroblasts, endothelial cells or certain tumor cells. Because of its target cell specificity, MCP1 was postulated to play a pathogenic role in a variety of diseases characterized by mononuclear cell infiltration, including atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and allergic responses. Elevated levels of MCP1 have also been found in connection with osseus inflammation and Alzheimer's disease (AD) as well as Myocardial Ischemia and viral infections. In acute and chronicactive multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions immunoreactivity for MCP1 was increased whereas MCP1 was found to be significantly reduced in cerebrospinal fluids (CSF) and chronic lesions of patients with MS. In basophils, MCP1 is highly effective as a stimulus of histamine release but has only weak chemotactic activity. Additionally it has been shown to chemoattract CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes, and expression of the MCP1 chemokine may affect HIV infection via signalling through the CCR2 receptor.
