Semiquantitative detection of cytokine messages in X-irradiated and regenerating rat thymus.

Abstract

We investigated the expression of cytokine mRNA derived from thymocytes or thymic epithelial cells in X-irradiated (8 Gy) and recovering rat thymuses, according to our previous observation (Mizutani et al., Radiat. Res. 157, 281-289, 2002). The changes in mRNA expression level of interleukin 2 (Il2), Il4, tumor necrosis factor alpha (Tnf), interferon gamma… (More)
