Cytokine connections between and among immune and body cells (see Table Table1) 1) were obtained manually from two Internet databases: the Cytokines Online Pathfinder Encyclopedia (COPE)[5,6] and the Cytokine Reference – Online Database[].We transformed automatically the raw data into a network format designating cells as Cited by: The immune system is an evolutionarily ancient network that invokes the activation of specific cellular changes and events in response to danger. The innate immune system represents a conserved and repetitive set of responses to danger in which the nature of the response is identical, each time the same threat is encountered.

Since the subunit common to all members of the family functions in binding cytokine and in signal transduction, a receptor for one cytokine can often respond to another cytokine in the same family. Thus, an individual lacking IL-2, for example, is not adversely affected because other cytokines (IL, IL-7, IL-9, etc.) assume its function. Cytokine Network The immune system recognizes the presence of pathogens by several proteins that bind to molecules secreted by the pathogen or carried on their surface. The cells responsible for these immune responses include the B-Cells, T-Cells, macrophages, neutrophils, basophils, eosinophils, endothelial cells, or mast cells (Ref.1).   (c) Scatter plot highlighting the strong correlation in cytokine degrees between incoming and outgoing directions of the manually curated reference book interaction network (n= cytokines, r=0 Cited by: The book helps the reader understand how cytokines network inside the tissues and highlights whether tissue-protection or exacerbation will be finally controlled. It describes the cytokines detected and regulated in different tissues, such as the brain, lungs, spleen, liver, pancreas and intestine, also addressing the issue of timing in.

The Cytokines of the Immune System catalogs cytokines and links them to physiology and pathology, providing a welcome and hugely timely tool for scientists in all related fields. In cataloguing cytokines, it lists their potential for therapeutic use, links them to disease treatments needing further research and development, and shows their utility for learning about the immune system.   The recognition in the late s of two distinct (Th1 and Th2) clonal linages of Th lymphocytes, defined by unique cytokine secretory patterns, was a cornerstone in the understanding of immunological responses and the development of the current paradigms of immune/inflammatory disease etiology [32, 33].Th1 cells mediate immune responses against intracellular pathogens and are Cited by: Cytokines are a group of proteins secreted by cells of the immune system that act as chemical messengers. Cytokines released from one cell affect the actions of other cells by binding to receptors.
