Macrophage-derived chcmokine (MDC) is a member oi the CC ehemokine relatives. The receptor for MDC is CCR4, a G protein-coupled receptor expressed totally on the TH2 subset of T lymphocytes and on constructing T cells in the thymus. in keeping with this expression trend, MDC is a chemoattrac-lanl for those mobilephone kinds. MDC can be chemotactic for IL-2-activated NK cells, dendritic cells, and monocytes, even if even if those results are mediated via CCR4 or one other, as but to be pointed out receptor, is uncertain. In vivo, MDC seems to be fascinated with the migration of constructing T cells within the thymus, and of precise subsets of mature T cells within the outer edge. within the context of pathophysiology, MDC may perhaps play a huge position within the migration of TH2 cells in the course of allergic irritation, and of С los angeles + T cells to the surface in stipulations comparable to psoriasis.
