Modulation of C2 and C3 gene expression of human peripheral blood monocytes by interleukin 1 beta, interferon gamma, tumor necrosis factor alpha and lipopolysaccharide



Modulation of C2 and C3 gene expression of human peripheral blood monocytes by interleukin 1 beta, interferon gamma, tumor necrosis factor alpha and lipopolysaccharide



Experientia 48(11-12): 1148-1150



The effect of interleukin 1 beta (IL-1 beta), interferon gamma (IFN-gamma), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on the expression of the C2 and C3 genes in human adherent monocytes was studied. Stimulation of monocytes with IFN-gamma increased both C2 and C3 mRNA. IL-1 beta also increased C2 mRNA level, whereas C3 gene expression was not enhanced. TNF alpha failed to increase either C2 or C3 mRNA. LPS increased C2 mRNA, but suppressed C3 gene expression. These results suggest that C2 and C3 production by monocytes is regulated by IL-1 beta and IFN-gamma in the local tissues.
