Induces proliferation of TH1 cells


#1

Interleukins …

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

● IL2 ----- induces proliferation of TH1 cells .

● IL3 ----- induces proliferation of myeloid stem cells.

● IL4 ------
¤ Produced by TH2 cells (blocks proliferation of TH1 cells along with IL10).

¤ Associated with IgE class switch ( similar to IL13)

● IL6 -----

¤ Required for activation of B cells to plasma cells

¤ Key role in synthesis of acute phase proteins during inflammation.

● IL7---- induces proliferation of lymphoid stem cells.

● IL8 ------ chemotactic for neutrophil.

● IL10 ------ blocks proliferation of TH1 cells (produced by TH2 cells).

● IL11------- increases the platelet count.

● IL12 ------ induces proliferation of TH1 cells along with IL2.

● IL13 ----- class switch to IgE.
