C-C motif chemokine 22 (CCL22)

May play a role in the trafficking of activated/effector T-lymphocytes to inflammatory sites and other facets of actuated T-lymphocyte physiology. Chemotactic for monocytes, dendritic cells and natural killer cells.

Mild chemoattractant for primary activated T-lymphocytes and a potent chemoattractant for chronically activated T-lymphocytes but doesn't have chemoattractant activity for neutrophils, eosinophils, and resting T-lymphocytes. Binds to CCR4.
