Studies using mouse axotomised facial motoneuron model show a strong and highly selective entry of CD3+ lymphocytes into the affected nucleus, with a maximum at Day 14, which coincides with the peak of neuronal cell death, microglial phagocytosis, and increased synthesis of interleukin-1 beta (IL1beta), tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNFalpha) and interferon-gamma (IFNgamma). We explored the possible involvement of these cytokines during the main phase of lymphocyte recruitment into the… CONTINUE READING
