BackgroundMouse CCL24 is a secreted protein, which is a member of the CC chemokine subfamily. Mouse Ccl24 cDNA encodes a 119 amino acid residue precursor protein, shares approximately 58% amino acid sequence identity with human Ccl24. It is predominantly expressed in the jejunum and spleen and also be induced in the lung by allergen challengeand IL4. Mouse ccl24 has lower chemotactic activity for neutrophils but none for monocytes and activated lymphocytes. Ccl24 is chemotactic for resting T-lymphocytes, eosinophils and can bind to CCR3. LPS and IL4 also differentially regulate the expression of Ccl24 in monocytes and macrophages.
