Ym1/2 Promotes Th2 Cytokine Expression by Inhibiting 12/15(S)-Lipoxygenase: Identification of a Novel pathway for Regulating Allergic Inflammation

Cai, Yeping; Kumar, Rakesh K; Zhou, Jiansheng; Foster, Paul S; Webb, Dianne


The Ym1/2 lectin is expressed abundantly in the allergic mouse lung in an IL-13-dependent manner. However, the role of Ym1/2 in the development of allergic airways disease is largely unknown. In this investigation, we show that treatment of mice with anti-Ym1/2 Ab during induction of allergic airways disease attenuated mediastinal lymph node production of IL-5 and IL-13. Ym1/2 was found to be expressed by dendritic cells (DCs) in an IL-13-dependent manner and supplementation of DC/CD4+ T cell...[Show more]
