TLR4 through IFN-β promotes low molecular mass hyaluronan-induced neutrophil apoptosis.


Intratracheal administration of low molecular mass (LMM) hyaluronan (200 kDa) results in greater neutrophil infiltration in the lungs of TLR4(-/-) mice compared with that in wild-type mice. In general, enhanced neutrophil infiltration in tissue is due to cell influx; however, neutrophil apoptosis also plays an important role. We have assessed the effects of… (More)
