“Mice exposed to pollution showed a 15-fold increase in interleukin-6 just 24 hours later.”
“Kaptoge S, Mann AG, Sarwar N, Wood A, et al. (2008) Long-term interleukin-6 levels and subsequent risk of coronary heart disease: two new prospective studies and a systematic review.”
“Specifically, the researchers found that retinoic acid, a form of vitamin A, seems to work together with high levels of a pro-inflammatory substance known as interleukin-15 IL-15 to break the body's tolerance to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.”
“It's well known that sleep is induced by an immune "expression," or a cytokine, called interleukin-2, which happens in response to the LPS put off by our gut bacteria.”
“A flu infection stimulates the release of an immune system protein called interleukin-6, which in normal amounts helps the immune system do its job.”
“Unlike existing drugs, it blocks a protein called interleukin-6, making it an option for the patients who don't respond to other treatments.”
“A roughly similar result was seen when part of the sequence of a small bacterial protein was randomized to generate a library containing about forty million members, and when a library of fifty million artificial “minibodies” was probed for binding to a protein called interleukin Nord, K., Gunneriusson, E., Uhlen, M., and Nygren, P.”
“A little bacteria was added to the blood sample, then the researchers measured the strength of the immune response (specifically, how much of a substance called interleukin-6 the immune cells produced).”
“This happens because soluble fiber causes increased production of an anti-inflammatory protein called interleukin-4, he said.”
“There were, however, immune function genes whose expression increased with CD133 expression, including a cytokine gene called interleukin-17 that is linked to inflammation, and a gene related to suppression of immune function called NCAM-1.”
