Interleukin-8 (IL-8, C-X-C motif chemokine 8, Neutrophil-activating protein 1) is a chemotactic factor that attracts neutrophils, basophils and T-cells. It is released from several cell types in response to an inflammatory stimulus and is also involved in neutrophil activation. This secreted protein exists as a homodimer. Proteolytic cleavage generates several N-terminal processed forms after secretion.
