The mature and biologically active secreted interleukin-16 (IL16) is a 13-kDa carboxy terminal peptide derived from a larger intracellular precursor protein. Cleavage of IL16 from the propeptide is mediated by caspase-3. IL16 is a chemoattractant for a variety of cell types that express the cell surface antigen CD4.
