Mononuclear cells generate a variety of hormone-like proteins termed growth factors that are instrumental in the evolution and resolution of inflammatory reactions. Many of these growth regulatory molecules have multifunctional properties. For example, the mononuclear cell-derived growth factors, platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), and transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta), are potent leukocyte chemoattractants. In addition, TGF-beta, a product of platelets, T lymphocytes, and monocytes… CONTINUE READING
