Pulmonary chemokine expression is coordinately regulated by STAT1, STAT6, and IFN-gamma.

The expression of distinct chemokines within the asthmatic lung suggests that specific regulatory mechanisms may mediate various stages of asthmatic disease. Global transcript expression profiling was used to define the spectrum and kinetics of chemokine involvement in an experimental murine model of asthma. Seventeen chemokines were induced in the lungs of… CONTINUE READING
