Dendritic cells (DCs) and macrophages (MPs) are important for immunological homeostasis in the colon. We found that F4/80(hi)CX3CR1(hi) (CD11b(+)CD103(-)) cells account for 80% of mouse colonic lamina propria MHC-II(hi) cells. Both CD11c(+) and CD11c(-) cells within this population were identified as MPs based on multiple criteria, including an MP(More)
AIMS We studied the production of inflammatory mediators by rat KC and the possible in vitro effect of the somatostatin analogue octreotide. METHODS Primary KC cultures were incubated with LPS added alone or with different concentrations of octreotide. The production of TNFalpha, IL-6, IL-10, IL-12 and IL-13 was assessed in culture supernatants by ELISA(More)
