IL8

A gene on chromosome 4q13-q21 that encodes interleukin-8, a cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family. IL8 is a major mediator of inflammation, acting as a chemoattractant for neutrophils, basophils and T-cells, and is a potent angiogenic factor.

Molecular pathology
IL8 is a candidate gene for bronchiolitis.
