Background: CCL28 is associated with the pathogenesis of acute post-viral asthma. Results: In the absence of viral infection, natively folded CCL28 can induce asthma pathology, whereas unfolded CCL28 cannot. Conclusion: The structure of CCL28 is critical for its role in asthma pathogenesis. Significance: Inhibition of CCL28 presents a novel therapeutic option for the prevention of post-viral asthma.
