Data Sheet

Background: CCR8 (C-C chemokine receptor type 8) is a receptor for the chemokines CCL1 (I-309). The receptor regulates monocyte chemotaxis and thymic cell line apoptosis, and is an additional alternative coreceptor with CD4 for HIV-1 infection. CCR8 plays a role on cell types of relevance to respiratory diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and chronic bronchitis. The interference of CCR8 from its ligand represents a new approach in allergy therapy.

Application: Functional assays
