C-X-C motif chemokine 6

Gene

CXCL6

Organism
Bos taurus (Bovine)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Chemotactic for neutrophil granulocytes. Signals through binding and activation of its receptors (CXCR1 and CXCR2). In addition to its chemotactic and angiogenic properties, it has strong antibacterial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (90-fold-higher when compared to CXCL5 and CXCL7) (By similarity).By similarity1 Publication
