Leukemia inhibitory factor induces interleukin-8 and monocyte chemotactic and activating factor in human monocytes: differential regulation by interferon-gamma.

Abstract

Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) is a cytokine released at the site of injuries where there is a recruitment of monocytes and polymorphonuclear cells. We analyzed the effect of LIF on human monocytes, which are a major source of chemotactic factors. We showed that supernatants of monocytes treated with LIF (50 ng/mL) for 18 hours had chemotactic activity… (More)
