A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Dengue virus (DENV) produces an acute infection that results in the overproduction of proinflammatory cytokines. Although increased levels of the immunoregulator soluble ST2 (sST2) protein have been reported in the serum of patients with dengue, its importance during DENV infection remains unclear.The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of a recombinant human sST2 protein on the production of TNF-? and IL-6 in an in vitro model of DENV infection. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were permissive to in vitro DENV infection since viral antigen was detected in CD14+ monocytes by flow cytometry (median, 1%; range, 0–2.2), and in their supernatants TNF-? and IL-6 were detected. However, sST2 protein was not detected. Using multiple staining on infected PBMC we found that only CD14+ cells produced TNF-? and IL-6. Treatment with human recombinant sST2 protein decreased lipopolysaccharide-induced monocyte TNF-? and IL-6 production. However, this effect was not observed when the monocytes were pretreated with sST2 and later infected with DENV-2. These results suggest that sST2 has different roles in the regulation of TNF-? and IL-6 expression in human monocytes stimulated with LPS and DENV-2.
