Immunostimulatory oligodeoxynucleotides containing the CpG motifs (CpG-ODN) can activate antigen-presenting cells including dendritic cells, macrophages, B cells, and enhance production of Thl cytokines. So, CpG-ODN has been regarded as a promising immune adjuvant. Using the A20 B lymphoma cell model, we investigated the effect of CpG-ODN on the… CONTINUE READING
