Abstract:Different kinds of mediators, particularly chemokines, are responsible for the attraction and activation of eosinophils to the site of inflammation. In the last decade, this new family of chemotactic cytokines have become interesting because of their restricted target cell specificity. This article focuses on the activation of eosinophil effector functions in response to different CC chemokines.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
