General description

C-X-C motif chemokine ligand 16 (CXCL16) is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 17p13.2. The encoded protein is expressed in both transmembrane and soluble forms. CXCL16 belongs to the CXC chemokine family. CXCL16 is characterized with a chemokine domain followed by a glycosylated mucin-like stalk, a single transmembrane helix and an intracellular tail.

Biochem/physiol Actions

C-X-C motif chemokine ligand 16 (CXCL16) expressed on transmembranes, facilitates lipid metabolism by acting as a scavenger receptor for oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) uptake. Soluble form of CXCL16 acts as an attractant and adhesion molecule for CXCR6-expressing T cells, involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. CXCL16 expression is involved in the development of vascular, kidney and lung injury. Mutation in the gene increases the risk of susceptibility to myocardial infarction (MI). High levels of plasma CXCL16 has been observed in diabetic kidney disease patients.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST88180.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide.
