Expression of interleukin-8 by lipopolysaccharide-stimulated bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells.

Interleukin-8 (IL-8) is a potent neutrophil chemoattractant, produced by a variety of immune and nonimmune cells in response to exogenous and host-derived inflammatory stimuli. We demonstrate here that a suspension of normal bone marrow mononuclear cells, consisting principally of myeloid precursors, produces IL-8 in response to stimulation with… CONTINUE READING
