CXCL12

A gene on chromosome 10q11.1 that encodes a stromal cell-derived alpha chemokine of the intercrine family which, once bound to its receptor, CXCR4, activates lymphocytes, an interaction that has been implicated in the metastasis of breast and other cancers.

Molecular pathology
CXCL12 mutations are associated with resistance to HIV-1 infections.
