The stress neuropeptide, corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) is expressed in peripheral tissues and inflammatory sites and is implicated in the modulation of the inflammatory response in a paracrine/ autocrine manner. However, the mechanisms by which CRH expression is regulated in peripheral immune cells are unclear. In this article, we address this question by employing primary rat peritoneal macrophages treated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Our results showed that CRH could be detected at… CONTINUE READING
