Abstract:Chemokines are small chemoattractive proteins involved in many important physiological and pathological processes such as leukocyte mobilisation, inflammation, cancer and HIV-1 infection. The N-terminus of chemokines was shown to be crucial for interaction and activation with their cognate receptors. Therefore, multiple strategies including elongation, truncation, mutagenesis or chemical modifications of chemokine N-terminus were developed to identify analogues with modified selectivity displaying antagonist o…
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 of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
