Thus, owing to the lack of lung fibroblasts with varied genotypes, the effect of IL6 variants on IL-6 induction by lung carcinogen treatment was assessed in skin fibroblasts that were wild homozygous (GG, n = 3) and heterozygous (AG, n = 3) for rs1800797.
Our studies were able to trace a biochemical pathway through which adverse life circumstances - fight-or-flight stress responses - can activate the IL6 gene.
Our recent work has identified a region between -5202 and -5307 bp upstream of the IL6 transcription start site that plays an important role in IL6 gene regulation.
According to Keifer FW et al insulin resistant state in obesity is the result of chronic inflammatory state as demonstrated by the increase in plasma levels of C-reactive protein, inflammatory cytokines like TNFa, IL6, MCP-1 and IL8 and multifunctional protein like leptin and osteopontin.
La baja expresion de los genes de las citoquinas que estimulan la inmunidad humoral (IL5, IL6 y TGF-[beta]) se ha visto reflejada tambien en otros trabajos, donde la expresion de estas citoquinas no se encuentra proporcionalmente directa a la produccion de la IgA.
En concreto, TNF[alfa] y IL6 no solo han sido descritos como marcadores inflamatorios, sino tambien como causas de morbilidad y mortalidad en la senescencia (Duby et al.

Los pacientes con EHGNA posen altas concentraciones de IL-6 plasmatica y el polimorfismo -174 C/G del gen IL6 esta asociado con la tasa de transcripcion del gen y, por ende, con las concentraciones plasmaticas de IL-6.
Serum markers were analyzed in duplicate using colorimetic enzyme-linked immunoassays (cortisol and CRP, ALPCO Diagnostics, Salem, NH; IL6, Cayman Chemical Company, Ann Arbor, Michigan; CK, BioVision, Inc.
IL6, an effector of the hepatic acute phase response, may respond through STAT3 and favor inflammatory/tumorigenic pathways by blocking apoptosis [48].
Otros efecto general importante consiste en la interactuacion del veneno con celulas blanco, induciendo la liberacion de interleukinas IL6 e IL8; la primera de ellas ejerce efectos sobre el hipotalamo, hipofisis, higado y corteza adrenal, generando una situacion clinica y bioquimica de trauma agudo (3).
