CCL7, also known as monocyte chemotactic protein-3 (MCP-3), is a CC (cysteine–cysteine) chemokine that is 11–18 kDa in size depending on the level of glycosylation. Its gene has been mapped to chromosome 17q11.2-q12 and is expressed in response to endogenous cytokines or exogenous bacterial products. This protein shares 60–71% homology with MCP-1 and MCP-2 chemokines and consequently binds similar receptors. Receptors CCR1, CCR2, CCR3, and CCR5 have been identified to bind CCL7 in both progenitor and immune cells.
