Cryostat sections from skin biopsies from 24-h allergen-induced late-phase cutaneous reactions (LPR) in 14 human atopic subjects were hybridized with 35S-labeled RNA probes for a number of cytokines. mRNA was detected for interleukin 3 (IL-3) (8/14), IL-4 (10/14), IL-5 (11/14), and granulocyte/macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) (13/14). Only 5 of 14 gave hybridization signals for IL-2, and 0 of 14 for interferon gamma. Biopsies from diluent controls gave only occasional weak signals… CONTINUE READING
