The expression of immunomodulatory membrane molecules such as inter-cellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) by Western blot analysis, and the release of chemokines such as monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) and interleukin-8 (IL-8) through ELISA kits, were determined.
The main function of IL-17-secreting T cells is to mediate inflammation, by stimulating production of inflammatory cytokines, such as TNF-alpha, IL-1beta and IL-6, and inflammatory chemokines, including CXCL-6, CXCL-7, CXCL-8, IL-8 and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), and metalloproteinases that promote the recruitment of neutrophils and macrophages (recruited by Thl cells) resulting in inflammation and tissue pathology (Fig.
