Abstract

This review describes recent breakthroughs in our understanding of the roles played by chemokines in lymphocyte trafficking. These include the first demonstration that chemokines control lymphocyte/vascular recognition by shear-resistant rapid adhesion; the first example of specialized tissue-specific homing mediated by chemokines; and the implication that chemokines may control microenvironmental segregation within lymphoid organs.
