Comments
CCL3 is a CC family chemokine more commonly referred to as macrophage inflammatory protein-1α or MIP-1α. It acts in a dimer with CCL4 (MIP-1β) [1].
Medical Relevance
A variation in the MIP-1α gene (specifically, a polymorphism MIP-1α -906 (TA)(6)/(TA)(6) ) may increase susceptibility to ulcerative colitis [5]
