PhD graduate Dr Andra Banete in Dr Sam Basta's lab has recently provided new insights into the role of IL-4 priming of splenic macrophages on their inflammatory response to Toll-like receptors during the innate immune response.
Macrophage phenotypic plasticity is poorly defined
Splenic macrophages primed with IL-4 show elevated inflammatory mediator production via TLR7/8-STAT6 axis
These results have implications for innate immunity and vaccine development
