This antimicrobial gene encodes a protein thought to be involved in T cell trafficking. The encoded protein binds to C-X-C motif chemokine 3 and is a chemoattractant for lymphocytes but not for neutrophils. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014]

OBSERVATIONS

Complication Evidence PMID
Nephropathy1. Increased urinary levels of CXCL5, CXCL8 and CXCL9 in patients with Type 2 diabetic nephropathy. 2. These suggest that these three CXC chemokines may be involved in the progression of human Type 2 diabetic nephropathy and that CXCL5 may be of use for telling diabetic nephropathy from primary renal diseases.18413205
