The production of immunoglobulin E (IgE) is tightly regulated. This is evidenced by the fact that it comprises less than 0.0001% of serum Ig, and aberrant production causes atopic conditions, including allergy, rhinitis, and anaphylaxis. Interleukin-4 (IL-4) is a well-characterized inducer of IgE by human and murine B cells, whereas interferon-7 can antagonize this effect. IL-21 has also been recognized for its ability to suppress IL-4-induced IgE production by murine B cells. Here, we...[Show more]
