We investigated the role of antigen-presenting cells in early interferon (IFN)-␥ production in normal and recombinase activating gene 2–deficient (Rag-2 ϪրϪ) mice in response to Listeria monocytogenes (LM) infection and interleukin (IL)-12 administration. Levels of serum IFN-␥ in Rag-2 ϪրϪ mice were comparable to those of normal mice upon either LM(More)
Interleukin (IL)-15 is expressed in a variety of inflammatory diseases. However, the contribution of dendritic cell (DC)-derived IL-15 to the development of diseases is uncertain. Using established models of Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes)- and zymosan-induced liver inflammation, we observed granuloma formation in the livers of wild-type (WT) and(More)
