  • Product Description

    CCR6 is a GPCR that binds to a single chemokine, CCL20 (also known as MIP-3α, LARC or Exods-1), as well as several members of the beta-defensin family of antimicrobial peptides (Schutyser, 2003). Immature dendritic cells, B-cells, and effector/memory T-cells express CCR6, and the receptor promotes inflammation during the development of rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and graft-versus-host disease (Varona et al., 2003; Kleinewietfeld et al., 2005; Varona et al., 2005). The cloned human CCR6-expressing cell line is made in the Chem-1 host, which supports high levels of recombinant CCR6 expression on the cell surface and contains high levels of the promiscuous G protein Gα15 to couple the receptor to the calcium signaling pathway. Thus, the cell line is an ideal tool for screening for antagonists of interactions between CCR6 and its ligands.
