Chemokines

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Chemokines are a unique class of chemoattractant proteins that, in conjunction with their G protein-coupled receptors, are crucial for orienting cell migration. Chemokines control developmental processes and, in pathological conditions, modulate inflammation and other host responses by controlling migration of immune cells. Furthermore, chemokines play decisive roles in tumor biology by promoting angiogenesis, metastasis, and cell proliferation. Here, the authors discuss how chemokines affect the nervous system under physiological conditions and in neurological disease.
