Chemokines: what chemokine is that?

Curr Biol. 1997 Jun 1;7(6):R384-6. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(06)00181-3.

Abstract

The discovery of a new and unusual member of the chemokine family illustrates the importance of chemoattractant diversity in the regulation of leukocyte movement through the body. The chemokines are now divisible into four clearly defined subgroups on the basis of structural and functional properties.
