The interleukin-2 receptor in human monocytes and macrophages: regulation of expression and release of the alpha and beta chains (p55 and p75)

Scheibenbogen, C. ; Keilholz, U. ; Richter, M. ; Andreesen, Reinhard ; Hunstein, W.


Human monocytes constitutively express the intermediate-affinity interleukin-2 receptor (IL2R) p75, while freshly isolated monocytes lack the low-affinity IL2R p55 (Tac antigen, CD25). Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) upregulates expression of p75 and effectively induces surface expression of CD25 on human monocytes within 18 h, as detected by two-colour FACS analysis on 59.5 +/- 7.6% of cells. ...
