Interleukin 8 (IL-8), formerly called monocyte-derived neutrophil chemotactic factor, belongs to the C-X-C chemokine family. It was originally discovered and purified independently by a number of laboratories as a neutrophil chemotactic and activating factor. It was also referred to as neutrophil activating protein, neutrophil chemotactic factor, leukocyte adhesion inhibitor, granulocyte chemotactic protein and T-lymphocyte chemotactic factor. IL-8 consists of 72 amino acids with a molecular weight of 8 kDa. IL-8 exhibits chemotactic activity in vitro for T cells, basophils and neutrophils. IL-8 activates neutrophils to release lysosomal enzymes including myeloperoxidase, -mannosidase and -glucuronidase. _x000B_IL-1, TNF, Lipopolysaccharides and viruses induce the production of IL-8 from fibroblasts, keratinocytes, endothelial cells, hepatoma cells, astrocytoma cells, glioblastoma cells, lung epithelial cells, synovial membrane cells, melanocytes, melanoma cells and gastric cancer cells.
