Rabbit anti Human Lymphotactin antibody recognizes human Lymphotactin, otherwise known as XCL1, the only member of the C-chemokine family identified so far. Unlike other members of the chemokine superfamily, Lymphotactin uniquely acts as a chemoattractant for lymphocytes, but not monocytes or neutrophils, suggesting an important regulatory role in lymphocyte trafficking and inflammation.

Lymphotactin, shown to signal through chemokine XC receptor 1 (XCR1), is detected at the highest level in the spleen and at low levels in the lungs, small intestine and colon, and is abundantly and selectively expressed by activated T cells, in particular CD8+ T cells, and is also produced by NK cells.
