Duffy antigen facilitates movement of chemokine across the endothelium in vitro and promotes neutrophil transmigration in vitro and in vivo.
Functional and biochemical analysis of the cloned Duffy antigen: identity with the red blood cell chemokine receptor.
The protein linked to the gene is called Duffy Antigen Receptor for Chemokines, or DARC.
Eventually they targeted DARC (Duffy Antigen Receptor for Chemokines) which appeared to be less active in mice with higher bone density.
The study, published July 20, 2009, in Blood, shows that African-Americans with HIV who possess both a variation in the gene for the Duffy antigen receptor for chemokine (DARC) and leukopenia have slower HIV-to-AIDS progression rates than HIV-infected European-Americans with leukopenia.
