Sample text

Examples of integrin heterodimers include: β1 integrins (α4β1 or VLA-4), β2 integrins (αLβ2 or LFA-1), and β7 integrins (α4β7). β2 integrins The β2 integrin subfamily is highly expressed on all circulating leukocytes and consists of a common β2 subunit (CD18) linked to one of four α subunits: CD11a, CD11b, CD11c, or CD11d. The leukocyte β2 integrins mediate firm adhesion of leukocytes to intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) expressed by endothelial cells. Thus, firm adhesion of leukocytes to endothelium can either be mediated by leukocyte β1 integrin binding to endothelial-expressed VCAM-1, or by leukocyte β2 integrin binding to endothelial expressed ICAM-1.

TNF) has resulted in a significant therapeutic benefit. Thus, in allergic inflammation an improved understanding of the mechanism through which cytokines promote allergic inflammation may identify key cytokine targets for therapeutic intervention. Cytokine regulation of IgE synthesis Cytokines such as IL-4 play a very important role in class switching of B cells to generate IgE an essential component of allergic responses (see Section on IgE). Cytokine regulation of blood vessel adhesion molecule expression Leukocyte adhesion molecules Adhesion molecules are glycoproteins expressed on the surface of leukocytes that mediate leukocyte to endothelium, as well as leukocyte to extracellular matrix adhesion and communication.

Chemokines are a group of structurally related cytokine proteins of low molecular weight (8–10 kDa) expressed by a wide variety of cell types that induce activation and the directed migration of specific leukocyte subsets to sites of inflammation. Chemokine families The chemokines are a large family of chemotactic cytokines that have been divided into four groups, designated CXC, CC, C, and CXXXC (or CX3C), depending on the spacing of conserved cysteines in their amino acid sequence (C is cysteine; X is any amino acid).
