The following CCL18 gene sequences were retrieved from the NCBI Reference Sequence Database (RefSeq). These sequences represent the protein coding region of the CCL18 gene which is encoded by the open reading frame (ORF) sequence. ORF sequences can be delivered in our standard vector, pcDNA3.1+/C-(K)DYK or the vector of your choice as an expression/transfection-ready ORF clone. Not the clone you want?

Summary: This antimicrobial gene is one of several Cys-Cys (CC)
cytokine genes clustered on the q arm of chromosome 17. Cytokines
are a family of secreted proteins involved in immunoregulatory and
inflammatory processes. The CC cytokines are proteins characterized
by two adjacent cysteines. The cytokine encoded by this gene
displays chemotactic activity for naive T cells, CD4+ and CD8+ T
cells and nonactivated lymphocytes, but not for monocytes or
granulocytes. This chemokine attracts naive T lymphocytes toward
dendritic cells and activated macrophages in lymph nodes. It may
play a role in both humoral and cell-mediated immunity responses.
