Mammalian 60-kDa heat-shock protein (hsp60) is a key target of T cell and Ab responses in chronic inflammation or atherosclerosis. We show in this study that human hsp60 is also an Ag recognized by cells of the innate immune system, such as macrophages. Both mouse and human macrophages respond to contact with exogenous human hsp60 with rapid release of(More)
The cholera toxin B chain (CTB) has been reported to suppress T cell-dependent autoimmune diseases and to potentiate tolerance of the adaptive immune system. We have analyzed the effects of CTB on macrophages in vitro and have found that preincubation with CTB (10 microg/ml) suppresses the proinflammatory reaction to LPS challenge, as demonstrated by(More)
