Human IL-16 is produced primarily by CD4(+) and CD8(+) T cells and acts as a chemoattractant for lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, dendritic cells and Langerhans cells. Additionally, IL-16 has been reported to upregulate IL-2 receptor (CD25), induce progression of cells to the G(1) phase and suppress HIV & SIV replication. Human and murine IL-16 share a high degree of structural and functional similarity.
