17β-Estradiol and interferon tau interact in the regulation of the immune response in a model of experimental autoimmune orchitis.

Abstract

Immunoregulatory activity of type I interferons (IFNs) and estrogen is convergent in some cases of autoimmune disorders. The aim of our study was to determine whether a potent interaction of IFN and estradiol (E2) has an influence on immune response and estrogen receptor alpha (ER-?) expression in antigen-presenting cells in a model of experimental… (More)
