A new member of the chemokine family of cytokines has been identified. These chemokines are produced by interferon-gamma stimulated monocytes. Both the human (HuMig) and marine (MuMig) genes have been identified and cloned. These proteins are members of the platelet factor 4/IL-8 cytokine family. Like other members of this family, the Mig proteins are implicated in inflammation and chemotaxis.
