Abstract:Selective and timely induction of apoptosis is an effective means of resolving inflammation. The effects and putative mechanisms by which cyclic AMP (cAMP) modulates leukocyte apoptosis in vivo are still unclear. The present study aims at identifying intracellular pathways underlying the ability of cAMP elevating agents to resolve eosinophilic inflammation in a model of allergic pleurisy in mice. Ovalbumin (OVA) challenge of immunized mice induced eosinophil recruitment that peaked at 24h and persisted till 48…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
