CXCL10 (IP-10)



IFN-g-inducible protein 10 (IP-10, CXCL10), a chemokine secreted from cells stimulated with type I and II interferons (IFNs) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS,) is a chemoattractant for activated T cells. Expression of IP-10 is seen in many Th1-type inflammatory diseases, where it plays an important role in recruiting activated T cells into sites of tissue inflammation (Dufour, Dziejman et al. 2002). IP-10 has been recently identified as a sensitive biomarker for inflammatory conditions including among others, development and treatment of tuberculosis (Ruhwald, Bjerregaard-Andersen et al. 2009, Goosen, Cooper et al. 2015), acute respiratory infections (Hayney, Henriquez et al. 2017), Kawasaki disease (Ko, Kuo et al. 2015), viral infections (Quint, Donaldson et al. 2010), and cystic fibrosis exacerbation (Solomon, Frederick et al. 2013). There are no available immunological reagents for MAR IP-10.
