A Novel CC Chemokine ABCD-1, Produced by Dendritic Cells and Activated B Cells, Exclusively Attracts Activated T Lymphocytes
Cells of the immune system can migrate as single cells through blood and lymph and can organize themselves to form specific areas in primary and secondary lymphoid organs. It has become evident that chemokines and their G protein-coupled seven-transmembrane receptors play an important role in the congregation of lymphoid cells and in the reactions of T and B cells which lead to the formation of germinal centers.
