Macrophages are widely distributed in lymphohaemopoietic and many other mammalian tissues, where they are mainly involved in host defence mechanisms, phagocytosis, wound repair, and secretion of growth factors. Increasing evidence suggests that secretory products of macrophages can influence adrenal gland functions. In the present study, we have used specific antibodies to ED1 (cytoplasmic antigen), ED2 (membrane antigen), ED8 (membrane antigen), and OX-6 (MHC class II/membrane antigen) as… CONTINUE READING
