Recently, my supervisor asked me to write an essay on Chemokine. I know what it is but I do not know how to get the essay start. Can someone help me with this, it will be better if you can give the outline of it.

What an interesting question! I see your instructor asked you to write an actual essay on "Chemokine, " which is actually a very scientific term. My suggestion, then, is that you write a basic expository essay. I will help you create an outline. 

I would begin your essay (your introduction) by talking about proteins secreted by cells. Then you can lead into your thesis statement which would be the definition of what a Chemokine actually is: a special family of proteins that have very specific behaviors.

Your body paragraphs should be about the specifics of these proteins. For example, I would have my first body paragraph be about how the product got its name. Chemokine gets its name from its ability to induce something called "chemotaxis" in adjacent cells. You can also describe, then, what "chemotaxis" is. The next paragraph can be about specific Chemokine behaviors (and how they specifically influence cell migration), while the final body paragraph can be about Chemokine's structural characteristics. Don't forget to begin each body paragraph with the topic sentence!

When it is time for your conclusion, don't forget to reword your thesis statement. Then you can go on talking about new ideas or research about Chemokines. with my instruction for a basic outline, you should be able to make each paragraph a specific or a scientific as you would like. Good luck to you as you write your essay!
