CCL25(redirected from thymus expressed chemokine)
CCL25A gene on chromosome 19p13.2 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. CCL25 binds CCR9; it is chemotactic for dendritic cells, thymocytes and activated macrophages, but not lymphocytes and neutrophils.
