  • Product Description

    The chemokine SDF-1α and its GPCR receptor CXCR4 have a one-to-one specificity that is unique among chemokines and their receptors. SDF-1α binds to CXCR4 expressed on hematopoietic and lymphopoietic cells, and directs their trafficking to and retention in hemato-and lymphatopoietic organs and sites of inflammation (Kucia et al., 2004). CXCR4 is expressed on several tumor cell lineages, and might be responsible for metastasis to sites of SDF-1α expression, such as bone and lymph nodes (Muller et al., 2001). In addition, CXCR4 is a coreceptor for the HIV envelope glycoprotein gp120 (Feng et al., 1996). Small molecule antagonists of CXCR4 have been developed and shown to inhibit infectivity of T-tropic HIV strains and to impair growth of brain tumors (Arakaki et al., 1999; Rubin et al., 2003). The cloned human recombinant CXCR4-expresssing cell lines is made in Chem-1 host, which support high levels of recombinant CXCR4 expression on the cell surface and contains high levels of the promiscuous G protein Ga15 to couple the receptor to the calcium signaling pathway. Thus, the cell line is an ideal tool for screening for antagonists of interactions between CXCR4 and its ligands
