InnateDB Annotation
Summary
IL4 (Interleukin-4) induces CCL17 expression via two STAT6 motifs in the proximal promoter and a distal tandem STAT6 element
CCL17 is required for the induction of intestinal inflammation in mice. CCL17 has an autocrine effect on dendritic cells that promotes production of inflammatory cytokines and activation of Th1 and Th17 cells and reduces expansion of Treg cells. (Demonstrated in mice)
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
Summary
[Mus musculus] Ccl17 is required for the induction of intestinal inflammation in mice. Ccl17 has an autocrine effect on dendritic cells that promotes production of inflammatory cytokines and activation of Th1 and Th17 cells and reduces expansion of Treg cells.
Entrez Gene
Summary This gene is one of several Cys-Cys (CC) cytokine genes clustered on the q arm of chromosome 16. Cytokines are a family of secreted proteins involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. The CC cytokines are proteins characterized by two adjacent cysteines. The cytokine encoded by this gene displays chemotactic activity for T lymphocytes, but not monocytes or granulocytes. The product of this gene binds to chemokine receptors CCR4 and CCR8. This chemokine plays important roles in T cell development in thymus as well as in trafficking and activation of mature T cells. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
