Interleukin-1 (IL-1 alpha and IL-1 beta collectively) has been shown to be produced by a wide variety of cell types. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the ability of bovine polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) to synthesize and release IL-1-like cytokines and characterize the active molecule(s). Purified peripheral blood PMNs were cultured for… CONTINUE READING
