ACKR3 expression on endothelium is regulated and increases during inflammatory conditions, leading to enhanced CXCL12 scavenging. Blockade of ACKR3 causes enhanced levels of CXCL12 in the circulation (Berahovich et al. 2014). Noteworthy, C57BL/6 mice, which were used for ACKR3 deletion, are null mutants 2 for CXCL11, indicating that the lethal phenotype is not caused by a defective CXCL11/ACKR3 axis, rather CXCL12 is the more important chemokine ligand. On the other side expression of ACKR3 on lymphatic endothelium is critical for balancing the availability of adrenomedullin, since ablation of ACKR3 leads to an adrenomedullin-mediated lymphatic vessel hyperplasia (Klein et al.

Keating, G. M. (2012).

The common viral pathogens identified from patients with exacerbation (including asthma) are rhinovirus, corona virus, influenza virus, parainfluenza virus, adenovirus, and respiratory syncytial virus, respectively (Wedzicha and Donaldson 2012). Human rhinovirus (HRV) has been studied in detail for its role in exacerbation in asthma, CF, and COPD (de Almeida et al. 2010; Quint Acute Exacerbations of Airway Inflammation et al. 2010; Yerkovich et al. 2012). Although there seems to be an association between respiratory exacerbation of chronic airway inflammation and rhinovirus in the airway, there are not enough data to establish a causal relationship in real life as respiratory viruses have been isolated from up to 40 % of asymptomatic children (Advani et al.
