Abstract

Monocytes (MO) and macrophages (MAC) are important producers of cytokines involved in the pathophysiology of bacterial sepsis. Most studies concentrate on the effects of bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS) regarding the induction of cytokine gene expression and secretion in MO/MAC. Here we report that besides LPS, the synthetic lipoprotein analogue lipopeptide ...
