Human lung fibroblasts inhibit macrophage inflammatory protein-1alpha production by lipopolysaccharide-stimulated macrophages.


We investigated the effect of interaction between lung fibroblasts and macrophages on macrophage inflammatory protein 1alpha (MIP-1alpha) production by macrophages. In a co-culture system consisting of WI-38 lung fibroblasts layered over THP-1 macrophages stimulated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS), MIP-1alpha production by THP-1 was significantly lower in co… (More)
