Part of the Contemporary Neuroscience book series (CNEURO)


Chemokines are chemoattractant cytokines that stimulate directional migration of inflammatory cell in vitro and in vivo. Because of this, chemokines can be included into a large group of cytokines involved in the pathogenesis of inflammatory processes. All chemokines were identified within the last 20 yr and our knowledge about their roles in biology is rapidly growing. At present, an enormous amount of literature about chemokines and chemokine receptors is published each year.
