Respiratory syncytial virus triggers synthesis of IL-6 in BALB/c mouse alveolar macrophages in the absence of virus replication.


Cytokines produced by alveolar macrophages are likely involved in the regulation of the immune response arising from respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection. Both infectious and UV-inactivated RSV were effective in inducing BALB/c mouse alveolar macrophages to synthesize increased levels of IL-6 mRNA and secreted IL-6 protein. No increase in IL-1beta… (More)
