Lipopolysaccharide induces hyporesponsiveness to its own action in RAW 264.7 cells.


Bacterial endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide, LPS) has the property of inducing hyporesponsiveness or tolerance to its own effects. This phenomenon has been demonstrated in man and experimental animals. The cellular changes that contribute to LPS tolerance are not understood. One mechanism of tolerance could involve a diminished response to LPS by key effector… (More)
