RANTES (regulated upon activation, normal T-cell expressed and secreted) is a 70-amino acid CC chemokine originally cloned from T-cell-specific sequences-enriched cDNA libraries. Both human and murine RANTES are chemotactic for monocytes. Human RANTES is also a chemoattractant for T-cells and eosinophils, as well as an activator of basophils for histamine release. In contrast to other CC chemokines, RANTES is only slowly expressed after activation of leukocytes. It is involved in a number of pathological conditions like chronic inflammation and autoimmune diseases.
