Small Inducible Cytokine Subfamily B, Member (SCYB8)
Interleukin-8 (IL8) is encoded by the IL8 gene and produced by macrophages and other cell types such as epithelial cells. IL8 is synthesized by endothelial cells, which stock IL8 in their storage vesicles. There are many receptors capable of binding to IL8; however, the molecules with the highest affinity to IL8 are receptors CXCR1 and CXCR2. As a member of the CXC chemokine family, one of the functions of IL8 is the induction of chemotaxis in its target cells, like neutrophil granulocytes, basophils, and T-cells. IL8 (72a.a.) has a 5-10-fold higher activity on neutrophil activation compared to IL8 (77 a.a.). IL8 is often associated with inflammation, and has been cited as a pro-inflammatory mediator in gingivitis and psoriasis.
