    CCL22/MDC Summary & Protein Information

    CCL22/MDC Background

    Gene Summary: CCL22 gene is one of several Cys-Cys (CC) cytokine genes clustered on the q arm of chromosome 16. Cytokines are a family of secreted proteins involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. The CC cytokines are proteins characterized by two adjacent cysteines. The cytokine encoded by CCL22 gene displays chemotactic activity for monocytes, dendritic cells, natural killer cells and for chronically activated T lymphocytes. It also displays a mild activity for primary activated T lymphocytes and has no chemoattractant activity for neutrophils, eosinophils and resting T lymphocytes. The product of CCL22 gene binds to chemokine receptor CCR4. This chemokine may play a role in the trafficking of activated T lymphocytes to inflammatory sites and other aspects of activated T lymphocyte physiology. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
    General information above from NCBI
    Subcellular location: Secreted.
    Tissue specificity: Highly expressed in macrophage and in monocyte-derived dendritic cells, and thymus. Also found in lymph node, appendix, activated monocytes, resting and activated macrophages. Lower expression in lung and spleen. Very weak expression in small intestine. In lymph node expressed in a mature subset of Langerhans' cells (CD1a+ and CD83+). Expressed in Langerhans' cell histiocytosis but not in dermatopathic lymphadenopathy. Expressed in atopic dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis skin, and psoriasis, in both the epidermis and dermis.
    Post-translational: The N-terminal processed forms MDC(3-69), MDC(5-69) and MDC(7-69) are produced by proteolytic cleavage after secretion from monocyte derived dendrocytes.
    Sequence similarity: Belongs to the intercrine beta (chemokine CC) family.
    General information above from UniProt

    Chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 22(ABCD-1 / CCL22)is a kind of CC chemokine which is a family of secreted proteins involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. The cytokine displays chemotactic activity for monocytes, dendritic cells, natural killer cells and for chronically activated T lymphocytes. It also displays a mild activity for primary activated T lymphocytes and has no chemoattractant activity for neutrophils, eosinophils and resting T lymphocytes. This ABCD-1 / CCL22 chemokine binds to chemokine receptor CCR4. This chemokine may play a role in the trafficking of activated / effector T lymphocytes to inflammatory sites and other aspects of activated T-lymphocyte physiology. ABCD-1 / CCL22 is highly expressed in macrophage and in monocyte-derived dendritic cells, and thymus, and in Langerhans' cell histiocytosis and atopic dermatitis but not in dermatopathic lymphadenopathy. This chemokine is also found in lymph node, appendix, activated monocytes, resting and activated macrophages. This protein is lower expressed in lung and spleen and very weekly expressed in small intestine.
