IL-1 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha each up-regulate both the expression of IFN-gamma receptors and enhance IFN-gamma-induced HLA-DR expression on human monocytes and a human monocytic cell line (THP-1)

Stimulation of human blood monocytes (adherent mononuclear cells) and the monocytic cell line, THP-1, by IL-1 or TNF-alpha leads to the up-regulation of IFN-gamma receptors. Scatchard analysis using 125I-IFN-gamma revealed a twofold increase in the number of IFN-gamma receptors on THP-1 cells without an alteration in the affinity of the receptor.
