CCL2

A gene on chromosome 17q11.2-q21.1 that encodes a protein structurally related to the CXC subfamily of cytokines, which are characterised by two cysteines separated by a single amino acid. CCL2 is chemotactic for monocytes and basophils, but not neutrophils or eosinophils; it binds to chemokine receptors CCR2 and CCR4.

Molecular pathology
Altered expression of CCL2 has been linked to diseases characterised by monocytic infiltrates—e.g., psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis.

Metal-antigen sensitized and activated DTH T-cells release various cytokines which recruit and activate macrophages, Figure 2 [38], such as IL-3 and GM-CSF (promotes hematopoiesis of granulocytes); monocyte chemotactic activating factor (MCAF) (promotes chemotaxis of monocytes toward areas of DTH activation); IFN-[gamma] and TNF-[beta] (produce a number of effects on local endothelial cells facilitating infiltration); and migration inhibitory factor (MIF) (signals macrophages to remain in the local area of the DTH reaction).
