|Full Name||interleukin 16 (lymphocyte chemoattractant factor)|
|Product Description||Rabbit Polyclonal antibody to IL16 (interleukin 16 (lymphocyte chemoattractant factor))|
|Background||The protein encoded by this gene is a pleiotropic cytokine that functions as a chemoattractant, a modulator of T cell activation, and an inhibitor of HIV replication. The signaling process of this cytokine is mediated by CD4. The product of this gene undergoes proteolytic processing, which is found to yield two functional proteins. The cytokine function is exclusively attributed to the secreted C-terminal peptide, while the N-terminal product may play a role in cell cycle control. Caspase 3 is reported to be involved in the proteolytic processing of this protein. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq]|
