An important role has emerged for chemokines in regulating the distribution of progenitor cells during hematopoietic cell development. As well as recruiting cells, chemokines promote cell retention and cytokine expression. Furthermore, chemokines have been found to have an inductive function in secondary lymphoid organ development.
