Correlation between nuclear melatonin receptor expression and enhanced cytokine production in human lymphocytic and monocytic cell lines.


The report shows that melatonin enhances IL-2 and IL-6 production by two human lymphocytic (Jurkat) and monocytic (U937) cell lines via a nuclear receptor-mediated mechanism. Jurkat cells express nuclear (RZRalpha, RORalpha1 and RORalpha2) and membrane (mt1) melatonin receptors, and melatonin binds to Jurkat nuclei and membranes with the same affinity… (More)
