Cytokines and cytokine receptors : physiology and by Constantin A. Bona, Jean-Pierre Revillard

By Constantin A. Bona, Jean-Pierre Revillard

The sphere of cytokine study is increasing at a fast speed Contributions from the main prime teams on the earth at the constitution and organic houses of cytokine and cytokine receptors, in addition to built-in stories on cytokines in numerous physiological and pathological stipulations have been provided in 3 problems with overseas experiences of Immunology This number of articles supplied a distinct resource of data notwithstanding, vital discoveries are rising very speedily and a few of the studies written in 1997 are already superseded during this publication, the editors gather experiences which have been up to date by means of their authors to incorporate all of the contemporary guides and unpublished facts from the authors' laboratories This quantity should still function a very good reference resource for all these involved through the a number of faces of cytokines in easy study and within the sanatorium

Example text

Independently, a human molecule found in the supernatant of T cell clones was characterized by its ability to replace the murine interleukin-3 (IL3) in sustaining the proliferation of the murine DA1 myeloid cell line [11–14]. This factor was called Human Interleukin for DA cells (HILDA) and once cloned its cDNA proved to be homologous to its murine LIF counterpart [15–17]. LIF is a pleiotropic cytokine endowed with a broad range of in vitro biological functions which for some of which have been known for a long time.
