Interferon gamma inducible protein 10
IP-10 is Interferon gamma (INF-γ) inducible protein 10. It is a chemokine, and important for recruiting natural killer cells to the myocardium, and for limiting viral duplication in murine (mice/rodent) coxsackievirus infection.
Alternative names[edit | edit source]
IP-10 is also known as:
- C-X-C motif chemokine 10
- IFN-γ inducible protein 10
- Interferon gamma inducible protein 10
- 10 kDa interferon-gamma induced protein

Notable studies[edit | edit source]
- This study found "compelling evidence" of the role of several cytokines/chemokines in the physiological and cognitive pathology in a group of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, although these patients were selected using the Oxford criteria, which includes many patients with chronic fatigue not caused by ME/CFS.
