Mycobacterium tuberculosis induces CCL18 expression in human macrophages.


The interaction of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) with the immune system is mediated by cytokine and chemokine responses of macrophages and/or dendritic cells. Chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 18 (CCL18) and interleukin (IL)-10 are major factors secreted by phagocytes, postulated to recruit naïve T lymphocytes and inhibit pro-inflammatory cells.
