CCL1

A gene on chromosome 17q12 that encodes a protein structurally related to the CXC subfamily of cytokines, which are characterised by two cysteines separated by a single amino acid. CCL1 is secreted by activated T cells and is chemotactic for monocytes but not neutrophils; it binds to chemokine receptor CCR8.
