CCL27

A gene on chromosome 9p13 that encodes a CC-type cytokine, which is characterised by two adjacent cysteines and, as with all cytokines, is involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. CCL27 binds CCR10 and is chemotactic for skin-associated memory T cell; it is thought to play a role in mediating homing of lymphocytes to skin sites.
