CCL15

A gene on chromosome 17q11.2 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. CCL15 is chemotactic for T cells and monocytes, and induces N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase release in monocytes; it also induces changes in intracellular calcium concentration in monocytes, is thought to act through the CCR1 receptor, and binds to CCR3.

Some of these were present in more than 3 samples: growth factors (fibroblast growth factor 4, placental growth factor), chemotactic factors [B lymphocyte chemoattractant/CXCL13, macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP)-1[beta]/CCL4, MIP-1[delta]/ CCL15, MIP-3[alpha]/CCL20, pulmonary and activation-related chemokine (PARC)/CCL18, leukemia inhibitory factor, oncostatin M], and antiinflammatory factors [tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase (TIMP)-1, TIMP-2, macrophage-derived chemokine (MDC)/CCL22].
