fractalkine


fractalkine
Membrane-bound chemokinewith CX3C motif. Chemokine domain (76 amino acids) is bound to membrane through mucin-like stalk (241 amino acids) or can be released as a 95 kD glycoprotein. Highly expressed on activated endothelial cells and is both an adhesion molecule and an attractant for T cells and monocytes.
