CXCL17 Chemokine that acts as chemoattractant for monocytes, macrophages and dendritic cells. Plays a role in angiogenesis and possibly in the development of tumors. Acts as an anti-inflammatory in the stomach. May play a role in the innate defense against infections. Activates the C-X-C chemokine receptor GPR35 to induce a rapid and transient rise in the level of intracellular calcium ions. 4-Cys CXCL17: seems exhibit much higher chemoattractant potency on monocytes and macrophages than 6-Cys CXCL17. Belongs to the intercrine alpha (chemokine CxC) family. Detected in trachea, stomach, lung and skeletal muscle. Detected in intestine and in normal and asthmatic lung (at protein level). Breast tumors showed 3- to 24-fold up-regulation. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
