Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and interferon (IFN)-gamma synergistically induced interleukin-8 (IL-8) production in human monocytic THP-1 cells. IFN-gamma-primed THP-1 cells produced higher levels of IL-8 on stimulation with LPS than non-primed cells and the level correlated with duration of priming up to 24 h, although the level of IL-8 induced was most comparable to that induced by co-stimulation with LPS and IFN-gamma. Unstimulated THP-1 cells were shown by flow cytometry to be practically devoid… CONTINUE READING
