Neural injury is known to trigger inflammatory changes, including the synthesis of proinflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-1-beta (IL1beta), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFalpha), and interferon-gamma (IFNgamma) [G. Raivich, L. L. Jones, C. U. A. Kloss, A. Werner, H. Neumann, and G. W. Kreutzberg, 1998, J Neurosci, 18: 5804-5816] that may play a pivotal role in mediating the cellular response in the affected brain tissue. Here we examined the effects of transgenic deletion of receptors… CONTINUE READING
