In vitro expression of tumor necrosis factor-alpha, interleukin 1beta, and interleukin 8 mRNA by bovine macrophages following exposure to Porphyromonas levii.


The objective was to evaluate the pro-inflammatory response of bovine macrophages towards Porphyromonas levii, an etiologic agent of acute interdigital phlegmon, by evaluating the mRNA expression of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin 1beta (IL-1beta), and interleukin 8 (IL-8). Bovine macrophages detect the presence of bacteria, such as P… (More)
