Chemokine CCL2 (Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein 1) Summary

Description: A chemokine that is a chemoattractant for MONOCYTES and may also cause cellular activation of specific functions related to host defense. It is produced by LEUKOCYTES of both monocyte and lymphocyte lineage and by FIBROBLASTS during tissue injury. It has specificity for CCR2 RECEPTORS.

Also Known As: Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein 1; CCL2 Chemokine; Chemokines CCL2; Monocyte Chemotactic and Activating Factor; CCL2, Chemokine Show All >>
