Modulation of Mycoplasma arthritidis-derived superantigen-induced cytokine gene expression by dexamethasone and interleukin-4.

Abstract

Activation of human monocytes or monocytic cell lines with all known stimuli coordinately induces the gene expression of various cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta), and the IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra). In contrast, superantigens induce TNF-alpha and IL-1 beta but fail to affect IL-1Ra gene… (More)
