Receptors, Chemokine: Cell surface glycoproteins that bind to chemokines and thus mediate the migration of pro-inflammatory molecules. The receptors are members of the seven-transmembrane G protein-coupled receptor family. Like the Chemokines themselves, the receptors can be divided into at least three structural branches: Cr, Ccr, and Cxcr, according to variations in a shared cysteine motif.
