Chemerin is a secreted chemoattractant protein that can signal through the chemokine-like receptor-1 (CMKLR1). It is expressed in various tissues, including white adipose tissue, and circulates in blood as an inactive 143 amino acid precursor protein. Biologically active Chemerin is generated by proteolytic removal of C-terminal residues by several circulating proteases. Chemerin acts as a chemoattractant for cells expressing the CMKLR1 receptor, which includes certain dendritic cells, macrophages, and adipocytes. Recombinant Human Chemerin is a 15.6 kDa protein consisting of 135 amino acid residues.
