Secreted hormones

  • Hormone: IL-1 beta

    • IL-1beta is abundantly secreted by activated macrophages and blood monocytes. [1]
  • Hormone: C-C motif chemokine 2

    • CC chemokine ligand 2 (CCL2) is constitutively expressed at high levels in human peripheral blood monocytes, and its expression is further up-modulated during their differentiation into macrophages as well as in the course of HIV infection. [2]
  • Hormone: IL-2

  • Hormone: MCP-2

  • Hormone: MCH

  • Hormone: chondromodulin 2

  • Hormone: fibronectin

  • Hormone: IL-28A

  • Hormone: IL-28B

  • Hormone: IL-29

  • Hormone: sphingosine 1-phosphate

    • In the blood, S1P levels are in the low-micromolar range and are mainly contributed by erythrocytes. [3]
  • Hormone: lysophosphatidic acid

Receptors

  • Receptor: B-CAM
