Distribution of IL-15 receptor alpha-chains on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells and effect of immunosuppressive drugs on receptor expression.


IL-15, a newly described cytokine exerting IL-2-like in vitro activities, binds to and induces proliferation of cells co-expressing IL-15R alpha, IL-2R beta, and IL-2R gamma chains. To study the expression of human IL-15R alpha chains, we have utilized tagged human IL-15 protein and FACS analysis. In contrast to resting cells, mitogen-activated macrophages… (More)
