CCL19(redirected from small inducible cytokine subfamily A (Cys-Cys), member 19)
CCL19A gene on chromosome 9p13 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. CCL19 binds CCR7, and may play a role in normal lymphocyte recirculation and homing, in trafficking of T cells in the thymus, and in T-cell and B-cell migration to secondary lymphoid tissue.
