Macrophage inflammatory proteins 1 alpha and 2 (MIP-1 alpha, MIP-2) are members of a growing family of cytokines thought to play a role in host defense. MIP-1 alpha and MIP-2 were previously identified in the mouse and shown to stimulate inflammatory cell recruitment. To better understand the potential role of MIP-1 alpha and MIP-2 in lung defense, we investigated the ability of rat lung cells to express mRNA for and/or secrete MIP-1 alpha and MIP-2 proteins in vitro and characterized… CONTINUE READING
