Background: CCR5 (chemokine (C-C motif) receptor 5) is a receptor for C-C type chemokines MIP-1-α, MIP-1-ß and CCL5. CCR5 plays a role in the control of granulocytic lineage proliferation or differentiation. It also acts as co-receptor with CD4 for primary non-syncytium- inducing strains (macrophage-tropic) of HIV-1 virus.
Application: Functional assays
