  Domain Name: Chemokine_CXC
Chemokine_CXC: 1 of 4 subgroup designations based on the arrangement of the two N-terminal cysteine residues; includes a number of secreted growth factors and interferons involved in mitogenic, chemotactic, and inflammatory activity; many members contain an RCxC motif which may be a general requirement for binding to CXC chemokine receptors; those with the ELR motif are chemotatic for neutrophils and have been shown to be angiogenic, while those without the motif act on T and B cells, and are typically angiostatic; exist as monomers and dimers, but are believed to be functional as monomers; found only in vertebrates and a few viruses. See CDs: Chemokine (cd00169) for the general alignment of chemokines, or Chemokine_CC (cd00272), Chemokine_C (cd00271), and Chemokine_CX3C (cd00274) for the additional chemokine subgroups.

This domain occurred 23 times on human genes (37 proteins).

 If you've navigated here from a protein, hovering over a position on the weblogo will display the corresponding protein position for that domain position.

 The histograms below the weblogo indicate mutations found on the domain. Red is for disease (OMIM) and blue is for SNPs.

 Functional Features are displayed as orange boxes under the histograms. You can choose which features are displayed in the box below.
