Expression of functional receptors for human C5a anaphylatoxin (CD88) on the human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line HepG2. Stimulation of acute-phase protein-specific mRNA and protein synthesis by human C5a anaphylatoxin.


Acute inflammation is characterized by increased production of acute phase proteins in the liver. The induction of the hepatocytic response is primarily mediated through soluble cytokines such as IL-1, IL-6, TNF-alpha, and transforming growth factor beta, which bind to specific cell surface receptors and regulate gene expression of acute-phase proteins… (More)
