16226254 CC chemokine-4 (HCC-4)/CCL16 transduces signals differently from other CCR1-dependent chemokines and may play different roles in the immune response.
15265943 CCL16 induced efficient migratory responses in human and mouse eosinophils. CCL16 is a novel functional ligand for H4 and may have a role in trafficking of eosinophils.
15034014 An adenoviral vector encoding human CCL16 injected into mice with pre-established mammary carcinoma induces strong antitumor response; when given before surgical excision of primary lesions, the treatment prevents metastatic spread and cures 63% of mice.
14525962 Recombinant CCL16 significantly enhances the effector and the antigen-presenting function of macrophages and augments T cell lytic activity.
