BACKGROUND: Human natural killer (NK) cells are the key contributors of innate immune response and the effector functions of these cells are enhanced by cytokines such as interleukine 2 (IL2). We utilized genome-wide transcriptional profiling to identify gene expression signatures and pathways in resting and IL2 activated NK cell isolated from peripheral blood of healthy donors. RESULTS: Gene expression profiling of resting NK cells showed high expression of a number of cytotoxic factors, cytokines, chemokines and inhibitory and activating surface NK receptors...

We have recently reported that interleukin (IL)-15 and IL-2, which signal through IL-2Rbetagamma, oppositely regulate expression of the proinflammatory chemokine receptor CX3CR1. Here we delineate molecular mechanisms responsible for this paradox. By using a luciferase reporter plasmid, we identified a 433-bp region spanning the major transcriptional start point of human CX3CR1 that, when expressed in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), possessed strong constitutive promoter activity. IL-2 and IL-15 treatment increased and abolished this activity, respectively, mimicking their effects on endogenous CX3CR1...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
