IL-8 is a proinflammatory CXC chemokine that can signal through the CXCR1 and CXCR2 receptors. It is secreted by monocytes and endothelial cells. IL-8 chemoattracts and activates neutrophils. Recombinant Human IL-8 (CXCL8) (77 a.a.) (endothelial-derived) is an 8.9 kDa protein containing 77 amino acid residues.
