Sensory nerves may dampen inflammatory processes through the release of the neuropeptide calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP). CGRP mediates immunosuppressive activities through up-regulation of interleukin-10 or, alternatively, through an interleukin-10-independent pathway that is associated with rapid induction of the transcriptional inducible cAMP early repressor (ICER). In this work, we further investigated the molecular mechanisms of immune modulation by CGRP. Using TLR2-stimulated… CONTINUE READING
