Interleukin 1 derived from human endothelial cells enhances the binding and chemotactic step of T lymphocyte emigration.


Recent evidence indicates that interleukin 1 (IL-1) from different sources has varying molecular weights, amino acid and gene sequences and biological properties. In previous experiments, it has been shown that monocyte derived IL-1 was chemotactic for lymphocytes and stimulated their binding to endothelial cells (EC). These phenomena are important in the… (More)
