CCR4 Monoclonal Antibody


CCR4 Monoclonal Antibody, Mogamulizumab, Mogamulizumab-kpkc, Poteligeo, CCR4 Receptor

  • Indications
  • Mechanism
  1. CCR4 (Chemokine receptor 4)
    1. CCR4 is a cell surface receptor that binds Cytokines (CCL2, CCL4, CCL5, CCL17 and CCL22)
    2. CCR4 Receptors are most commonly expressed on T-Lymphocytes, Mast Cells, Dendritic Cells and Natural Killer Cells
    3. CCR4 binding by Cytokine triggers chemotaxis of inflammatory cells (e.g. Natural Killer Cells)
  2. CCR4 Monoclonal Antibody (e.g. Mogamulizumab)
    1. Humanized Monoclonal Antibody selectively binds CCR4 and blocks chemotaxis, T-Cell proliferation and Angiogenesis
