Abstract

Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) signal activation of macrophages can lead to endotoxin-induced uveitis (EIU). Previously, our research group has demonstrated a higher expression of TLR4 in vivo during EIU than normal. In this study, we analyzed levels of peritoneal macrophage cytokines from C3H/HeN mice with LPS stimulation in vitro to elucidate the effect of TLR4 on cytokines during EIU.
Keywords: Toll-like receptor 4; mice peritoneal macrophage; endotoxin-induced uveitis; cytokine Toll-like receptor 4; mice peritoneal macrophage; endotoxin-induced uveitis; cytokine
