REGULATION


Human neutrophils synthesize IL-8 in an IgE-mediated activation.2004

Trifluoperazine, EGTA, reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-oxidase inhibitors, and reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavengers inhibited IL-8 production, indicating a critical dependence of calcium and oxidative stress.

Targets

S20A1_HUMAN

Sodium-phosphate symporter which plays a fundamental housekeeping role in phosphate transport, such as absorbing phosphate from interstitial fluid for normal cellular functions such as cellular metabolism, signal transduction, and nucleic acid and lipid synthesis. May play a role in extracellular matrix and cartilage calcification as well as in vascular calcification. May function as a retroviral receptor as it confers human cells susceptibility to infection to Gibbon Ape Leukemia Virus (GaLV), Simian sarcoma-associated virus (SSAV) and Feline leukemia virus subgroup B (FeLV-B) as well as 10A1 murine leukemia virus (10A1 MLV).
By phosphate deprivation as well as by IL8/interleukin-8 in hypertrophic chondrocytes
