Induction of lipopolysaccharide-binding protein gene expression in cultured rat pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells by interleukin 1 beta.


Lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-binding protein (LBP) binds with high affinity to LPS, and the LBP-LPS complex enhances cellular inflammatory responses to LPS. Although it is present in normal serum, LBP is also induced as part of the acute phase response. Synthesis of LBP is though to be limited to the liver, but we have recently reported significant extrahepatic… (More)
