Effect of Tumor Necrosis Factor Family Member LIGHT (TNFSF14) on the Activation of Basophils and Eosinophils Interacting with Bronchial Epithelial Cells
Effects of LIGHT on the release of IL-6 and CXCL8 from the coculture of basophils/eosinophils and BEAS-2B cells. Confluent BEAS-2B cells (1 × 105 cells) and (a, b) basophils/(c, d) eosinophils (3 × 105 cells) were cultured either together or separately with or without LIGHT for 24 h. Release of IL-6 and CXCL8 in culture supernatants was determined by Milliplex human cytokine/chemokine magnetic panel assay. Results are expressed as the mean plus SEM of three independent experiments with three blood samples. *, **, ***. BAS: basophils; Eosi: eosinophils; BS: BEAS-2B cells; CO: coculture.
