Mycoplasma arginini TUH-14 membrane lipoproteins induce production of interleukin-1, interleukin-6, and tumor necrosis factor alpha by human monocytes.


Mycoplasma arginini TUH-14 partially purified membrane lipoproteins (TUH-14-pp) directly induce secretion of the cytokines involved in the inflammatory response, namely, interleukin 1 (IL-1), tumor necrosis factor alpha, and IL-6, by human monocytes cultured in the absence of serum. The biological activity of each cytokine correlates with its… (More)
