The cytokine Interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta) is known to exert cytotoxic effects upon rodent beta-cells in vitro by inducing nitric oxide production and has therefore been suggested to play a role in the pathogenesis of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). Using the insulin producing rat cell line RINm5F and an electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA), it was presently found that IL-1 beta induced a rapid activation (5 min) of the transcription factor NF-kappa B and that this event was… CONTINUE READING
