Interleukin-23 promotes natural killer T-cell production of IL-17 during rat liver transplantation.


INTRODUCTION Cytokine interleukin-17 (IL-17) is a key proinflammatory mediator promoting allograft cytokine and chemokine production. In addition to Th17 cells, natural killer T (NKT) cells have also been shown to be capable of rapidly producing IL-17 after activation. METHODS The levels of IL-17 and IL-23 of liver allografts were determined using enzyme… (More)
