We investigated mRNA expression of cytokine receptors in three different types of glial cells and two neuronal line cells by the RT-PCR method. Microglia expressed mRNA for receptors of IL-3, -4, -6, -7, GM-CSF, and M-CSF. Astrocytes were positive for receptors of IL-6, -7, GM-CSF, and M-CSF. Oligodendrocytes were positive for receptors of IL-3, -4, -7, GM-CSF, and M-CSF. Neuronal cells expressed receptors of IL-6 and GM-CSF with very low levels. This is the first demonstration of cytokine… CONTINUE READING
