Human CC chemokine receptor 1 (CCR1) has been proposed as a receptor for CKβ8. To obtain conclusive evidence, binding-displacement studies of 125I-CKβ8 (25-99) were performed on membranes of Chinese hamster ovary cells expressing human CCR1. The IC50 for displacement of 125I-CKβ8 (25-99) with CKβ8 (25-99) was 0.22 nM. The longer forms of CKβ8 (24-99 and 1-99) also displaced 125I-CKβ8, with IC50 values of 6.5 and 16 nM, respectively. Displacement profiles of 125I-CKβ8 (25-99) on freshly prepared human monocytes indicated that CCR1 was the major receptor for CKβ8. We conclude that CCR1 is a receptor for different-length CKβ8 and that CKβ8 (25-99) has a similar affinity for CCR1 as macrophage inflammatory protein-1α (MIP-1α). The longer variants of CKβ8 are significantly less potent than CKβ8 (25-99) and MIP-1α on CCR1 and monocytes (P < 0.05). Copyright (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Inc.

Cloning, in vitro expression, and functional characterization of a novel human CC chemokine of the monocyte chemotactic protein (MCP) family (MCP-4) that binds and signals through the CC chemokine receptor 2B Berkhout, Theo; Sarau, Henry M.; Moores, Kitty E.; White, John R.; Elshourbagy, Nabil; Appelbaum, Edward; Reape, Theresa J.; Brawner, Mary; Makwana, Jayneeta; Foley, James J.; Schmidt, Dulcie B.; Imburgia, Christine; McNulty, Dean; Matthews, Jane; O'Donnell, Kevin; O'Shannessy, Daniel; Scott, Miller; Groot, Pieter H E; Macphee, Colin H. (1997-06-27)Here we describe the characterization of a novel human CC chemokine, tentatively named monocyte chemotactic protein (MCP-4). This chemokine was detected by random sequencing of expressed sequence tags in cDNA libraries. ...
