Chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 2 (CXCL2), also known as MIP2-α and GROβ, is a small, inducible cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family. Other chemokines in this group include IL-8, GROα, GROγ, mouse KC, ENA78, GCP2 and PBP/CTAPIII/β TG/NAP2. Since it is structurally related to IL-8, CXCL2 competes with IL-8 for binding to IL-8 receptors on neutrophils and to a lesser extent, basophils. CXCL2 is involved in attraction of polymorphonuclear granulocytes to sites of infection (1). It is active against Gram-negative (Escherichia coli) and Gram-positive (Staphyllococcus aureus) bacteria. It is secreted by monocytes and macrophages and is chemotactic for hematopoietic stem cells (2-4). MMP-12 cleaves CXCL2 at the ELR sequence motif, which is known to be the critical receptor binding motif leading to the loss of chemotactic activity (5).

Biological Activity
The biological activity of Human GRO-Beta was determined by by its ability to induce myeloperoxidase release from cytochalasin B treated neutrophils (Schröeder, J. et al., 1987, J. Immunol. 139:3474), or chemotaxis of hCXCR2 transfected mouse BaF/3 cells. The expected ED50 for these effects are typically 0.3 - 0.9 μg/ml, or 3 - 15 ng/ml, respectively.
