In this study, we identified two CXCR4 genes from a teleost, ayu (Plecoglossus altivelis), named PaCXCR4a and PaCXCR4b. PaCXCR4b was constitutively expressed in ayu HSPCs, whereas PaCXCR4a was induced by LPS treatment. The stromal-derived factor-1-binding activity of CXCR4b was significantly higher than that of CXCR4a, whereas the LPS-binding activity of CXCR4a was significantly higher than that of CXCR4b in the teleosts ayu, large yellow croaker (Larimichthys crocea), and tiger puffer (Takifugu rubripes). CXCR4a+ HSPCs were mobilized into blood by LPS, whereas CXCR4b+ HSPCs were mobilized by leukocyte cell-derived chemota...
