Fractalkine/CX3CL1, also termed neurotactin, is a member of the delta chemokine subfamily that contains a unique CX3C cysteine motif near the N-terminal. Unlike other known chemokines, fractalkine is a type 1 membrane protein containing a chemokine domain tethered on a long mucin-like stalk. Native mouse fractalkine cDNA encodes a 395 amino acid residue precursor protein with a predicted 24 or an alternative 21 amino acid residue signal peptide, a 76 amino acid residue globular chemokine domain, a 239 amino acid residue stalk region (rich in Gly, Pro, Ser, and Thr and containing degenerate mucin-like repeats), a 19 amino acid residue transmembrane segment, and a 37 amino acid residue cytoplasmic domain.Fractalkine, a leukocyte chemoattractant, is expressed in various tissues including the brain, heart, lung, kidney, skeletal muscle, and testis. The soluble chemokine domain of mouse fractalkine chemoattracts neutrophils and T-cells, but not monocytes. The expression of fractalkine is reported to be up-regulated in endothelial cells and microglia by inflammatory signals. Membrane-bound fractalkine has been shown to promote adhesion of leukocytes. CX3CR1, a specific receptor for fractalkine, mediates both leukocyte migration and adhesion. The gene for mouse fractalkine has been mapped tochromosome 11.
