Co-exposure to environmental polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and interleukin (IL)-1β induces expression of the tumor-promoting cytokine IL-6 in cancer cells. The present study was designed to determine whether such an IL-6 up-regulation also occurs in response to co-treatment by PAHs and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, an inflammatory cytokine commonly found in tumor microenvironment. Co-exposure to the prototypical PAH benzanthracene (BZA) and TNF-α was found to markedly induce mRNA… CONTINUE READING
