Expression induced by interleukin-6 of tissue-type transglutaminase in human hepatoblastoma HepG2 cells.

Abstract

We examined the effect of interleukin-6 (IL-6) on the expression of transglutaminase in human hepatoblastoma HepG2 cells. Treatment of cells with IL-6 increased their transglutaminase activity in a time- and dose-dependent way. Dexamethasone strengthened the stimulation by IL-6. Half-maximum stimulation of transglutaminase activity in the cells occurred at… (More)
