BackgroundC-X-C Motif Chemokine 5 (CXCL5) is a member of the Intercrine Alpha (Chemokine CXC) family. CXCL5 can be cleaved into the following two chains, ENA-78 (8-78) and ENA-78 (9-78). In vitro, ENA-78(8-78) and ENA-78 (9-78) show a threefold higher chemotactic activity for neutrophil granulocytes. CXCL5 is a secreted protein and exercises the functions primarily through interactions with CXCR2. The upregulation of CXCL5 contributes to increased vascularization, tumor grown, and metastasis in many cancers.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 20mM PB, pH 6.0.
