Technical Data
CXCL1 (Growth-regulated alpha Protein, C-X-C Motif Chemokine 1, GRO-alpha(1-73), Melanoma Growth Stimulatory Activity, MGSA, Neutrophil-activating Protein 3, NAP-3, GRO, GRO1, GROA, SCYB1)
GRO Alpha (CXCL1), a small cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family, secreted by human melanoma cells, has mitogenic properties and is implicated in melanoma pathogenesis. GRO alpha is expressed by macrophages, neutrophils and epithelial cells, and has neutrophil chemoattractant activity. GRO Alpha plays a role in spinal cord development by inhibiting the migration of oligodendrocyte precursors and is involved in the processes of angiogenesis, inflammation, wound healing, and tumorigenesis. This chemokine elicits its effects by signaling through the chemokine receptor CXCR2. An initial study in mice showed evidence that GRO alpha decreased the severity of multiple sclerosis and may offer a neuro-protective function.
