Background: Interleukin (IL)-5 is a key regulator of eosinophilia in allergic inflammation and parasite infections but the mechanisms regulating IL-5 expression in activated human T lymphocytes are poorly understood. From studies on mouse cells, the activation protein (AP)-1 and GATA-3 sites in the proximal promoter region appear to be important in IL-5 regulation but the significance of an adjacent Ets/nuclear factor of activated T cell (NFAT) site has been less clear. Methods: Interleukin-5...[Show more]
