C-C motif chemokine 8 (CCL8)

Chemotactic factor that attracts monocytes, lymphocytes, basophils and eosinophils. May play a role in neoplasia and inflammatory host responses.

This protein can bind heparin. The processed form MCP-2(6-76) doesn't reveal monocyte chemotactic activity, but inhibits the chemotactic effect most predominantly of CCL7, and also of CCL2 and CCL5 and CCL8.
