Viral MIP-2 (vMIP-2) is a chemokine analog encoded by the human herpes virus, and has been shown to have antagonist activity towards several chemokine receptors. Recombinant Viral MIP-2 is a 7.9 kDa protein consisting of 70 amino acids, including the four highly conserved cysteine residues present in CC chemokines.
