It is clear from the biology of eosinophilia that a specific regulatory mechanism must exist. Because interleukin-5 (IL5) is the key regulatory cytokine, it follows that a gene-specific control of IL5 expression must exist that differs even from closely related cytokines such as IL4. Two features of IL5 induction make it unique compared with other(More)
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in industrialized countries, with epithelial cell cancers (carcinomas) representing approximately 85% of all diagnosed cancers. The 5-year survival rate for many carcinomas remains low, highlighting the requirement for improved diagnosis and more effective therapies. Epigenetic modifications that do not involve(More)
The role of eosinophilia in allergic disorders indicates hIL-5 as a potential target for therapy. The conservation of hIL-5 gene proximal elements suggests they are important in controlling expression. Corticosteroids are important in the treatment of allergy, and are powerful inhibitors of IL-5 expression. This study aimed at understanding the role of(More)
Synthetic glucocorticoid dexamethasone suppressed interleukin-5 gene expression in PER-117 human T cells at the level of transcription. The conserved lymphokine element 0 in the interleukin-5 gene promoter context served as a target for dexamethasone.
