Abstract

Chemokines are small pro-inflammatory peptides that are best known for their leukocyte-chemoattractant activity. The cloned leukocyte chemokine receptors, interleukin 8 receptor (IL-8R) types A and B and the macrophage inflammatory protein 1α (MIP-1α/RANTES receptor, are related by sequence and chemokine binding to two herpesvirus products, and to the Duffy antigen that mediates erythrocyte invasion by the malaria-causingg parasite H smodium vivax. Here, Sunil Abuja, Ji-Liang Gao and Philip Murphy suggest that in addition to the activation of leukocytes, chemokines may be important in the function of erythrocytes and, through molecular mimicry, in microbial pathogenesis.
