Effect of tumor necrosis factor alpha on mitogen-activated human B cells

Abstract

In this study we demonstrate that the monocyte/macrophage product, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), has significant in vitro effects of B cell function. It costimulated with anti-mu in the induction of B cell DNA synthesis, and it prolonged the DNA synthesis initiated in B cell cultures stimulated with the human B cell mitogen, Staphylococcus aureus… (More)
