Description

C-X-C chemokine 17 (CXCL17) or dendritic cell and monocyte chemokine-like protein (DMC), is a cytokine-like protein that regulates recruitment of nonactivated blood monocytes and immature dendritic cells into tissues [PMID: 16455961]. It may play a role in the innate defense against infections [PMID: 17307946]. It also plays a role in angiogenesis and possibly in the development of tumours [PMID: 16989774].
