Background: CXCR3 (chemokine receptor 3) is a receptor for SCYB9/MIG, SCYB10/INP10 and SCYB11/ITAC. The chemokines that target CXCR3 in concert with Th1 cytokine appear to play a beneficial role to atopic disorders including a range of conditions such as allergic asthma, -rhinitis, -conjunctivitis, -dermatitis, food and drug allergies and anaphylaxis.
Application: Functional assays
