As shown in Figure 2, C, Bcl-2 immunostaining of the normal pituitary gland is focal, and some authors (4) have suggested that it is primarily restricted to folliculostellate cells of the adenohypophysis.
This finding is in agreement with the previous study in which lipopolysaccharide acting via TLR4 stimulated the folliculostellate cells to release such proinflammatory cytokines as IL-6 [20].
These results are in agreement with those obtained in various cell types of different origins, including intestinal (36) and airway epithelial cells, (37) macrophages, (38,39) pulmonary fibroblasts, (40) bronchial smooth muscle cells, (41) astrocytoma cells, (42) astroglioma cells, (43) astrocytes (44) and cardiomyocytes, (45) osteoblasts, (46) and pituitary folliculostellate cells, (47) that all show NECA-induced IL-6 release was via the adenosine A2B receptors.
