AcPGP (N-α-PGP), an extracellular matrix (ECM)-derived CXC receptor ligand, is produced during airway inflammation. The activity of AcPGP links the degradation of ECM with the recruitment of neutrophils in airway inflammation. AcPGP may be a biomarker and therapeutic target for neutrophil inflammatory diseases.
