MIP-1 Alpha antibody
MIP-1 alpha is also involved in host defence against invading pathogens, acting as a regulator of activation and trafficking of inflammatory cells, such as macrophages, NK cells, granulocytes, dendritic cells and CD8+ lymphocytes. The recruitment of inflammatory cells by MIP-1 alpha, has been linked with the pathogenesis of several diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, H. pylori associated gastritis and bacterial meningitis.
The secretion of MIP-1 alpha by CD8+ lymphocytes acts as a major HIV-suppressive factor (HIV-SF) through binding to CCR5, identified as a coreceptor for HIV-1 target cell entry.
