  • Also called CD183
  • Receptor for some chemokines; binding of chemokines to CD183 induces integrin activation, cytoskeletal changes and chemotactic migration in inflammation-associated effector T cells
  • CD183+ T cells detected in inflamed tissues of patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, sarcoidosis, hepatitis C
